Few quick words about this week’s Monochrome Madness. Another image from my last month’s visit to Prague, this is one of the most famous bridges in the world.
Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. The bridge replaced the old Judith Bridge that had been badly damaged by a flood in 1342. This new bridge was originally called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) or the Prague Bridge (Pražský most) but has been the “Charles Bridge” since 1870. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava until 1841, the Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town and adjacent areas.

One of my favorites you have ever posted to MMC Lore, really beautiful. What an intriguing bridge and the boats give it great perspective. Nice job with your steady hand! Beautiful.
