The Old Town Bridge Tower (Staroměstská mostecká věž) is an impressive Gothic structure guarding one end of Charles Bridge and heralding the entrance to Prague's Old Town. Climb the 138 steps inside the tower to reach the gallery, for a bird's-eye view over Charles Bridge, the Vltava River, the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle.

Photography Tips

Try to get there in the early hours or at sunset. Be patient as there are often many tourists. A mid-range lens like the 24-70 mm is recommended. A tabletop tripod or a bean bag is necessary for long exposures as space is VERY limited and a regular-sized tripod does NOT fit.
