Staroměstská mostecká věž


Staroměstská mostecká věž review Rate it

Built in 1373, along the shadow line of St Vitus's Cathedral, the Old Town Bridge Tower was badly damaged in 1648 by marauding Swedes, but Peter Parler's sculptural decoration on the eastern side survives. There's a dull exhibit on the tower's history, but the real reason for visiting is to take in the splendid views from the top. Don't miss the medieval gropers on the tower's outer corners, just visible before you go under the tower coming from Staré Město: each depicts a buxom lass being felt up by a gentleman friend.
