Lesser Town Bridge Towers in Prague, Czech Republic

At the west end of the Charles Bridge are two gates created in the Late Middle Ages. The taller one, built in 1464, resembles the Old Town Bridge Tower designed by Petr Parléř. It stands 143 feet and offers a great viewing platform toward the top. The smaller tower dates from 1172 when it was part of the Judith Bridge. After crumbling in 1342, it was rebuilt in 1591. Collectively, they are called the Lesser Town Bridge Towers. This is the English translation for Malá Strana, the district of Prague you are now entering. In the center are the dome and clock tower of St. Nicholas Church, not to be confused with the one of the same name in Old Town.
