About The Lesser Town Bridge Tower

This tower is at one end of Charles Bridge and is the gateway to Lesser Town. It was originally built in the mid 13th century under George of Poděbrady, King of Bohemia’s rule and was designed in a post-Hussite Gothic style. Visitors can see spectacular views of Lesser Town and the Prague Castle from the 26 meter high viewing deck.
