32/43.- Prague, train bridge


Nice view, eh? Nowadays several bridges link both river banks. But that has not always been so. Before the 10th century there was no bridge, and citizens of Prague had to cross the river on ferries. The first Bridge was on the place where Charles bridge stands today. This was the only bridge in town for several centuries. In the 19th century new bridges were constructed, with the developing of new industries. The one you’re currently seeing is the Vysehrad Railway Bridge, constructed on the pillars of an old bridge in 1900-1901.

We will now take a tramway on Rasinovo Nabrezi (the street you can see by the river) and visit the National theater.
