National Theatre is also known as the Alma Mater of the Czech opera. This beautiful building was completed in 1881 and houses the Czech ballet, opera and drama.
Making a right at the river will lead you to the famous Charles Bridge. 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 built 1158-1172 that had been badly damaged by a flood in 1342. 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. This “solid-land” connection made Prague important as a trade route between Eastern and Western Europe. Charles Bridge houses many medieval era statues along both sides of it, which make the walk across a true travel through time.
