Changing of the statues on Old Town Bridge Tower

New decoration of Old Town Bridge Tower have to be done because of the poor state of the statues at the frontage. The statues were made in the 70’s of the last century from low-class artificial stone and were badly damaged by the changing weather during the years.

The old copies of historical statues will be replace with new stone ones. The original sculptures were made by Peter Parler in the 14th century and represent great rulers, such as St Vitus, the bridge’s patron saint, Charles IV or Wenceslas IV.

Due to this changes the viewing gallery will be closed to the public from 4th November to 12th November. The tickets to the Tower will be therefore cheaper. On 6th and 7th November the whole tower will be closed for technical reasons.
