Křížovnické Square

A square on the Old Town bank of the Vltava River at the end of the Charles Bridge, one of the smallest and at the same time the prettiest squares in Prague. The dominant feature of the square is a neo-Gothic monument of Charles IV., the most impressive part is the open Western side with a view on the river, the Charles Bridge and the panorama of the Prague Castle on the opposite bank. The current appearance of the square comes from 1848, when a river channel in front of the monastery of the Knights of the Cross was bridged by a wide terrace. At present time, the atmosphere of one of the most beautiful places in Prague is unfortunately spoilt by high car and tram traffic along its eastern side.
