Sight 8: Lesser Town Bridge Tower

Show sight on map

The Lesser Town Bridge Towers are two Prague towers of different styles, of unequal height, forming the entrance from the Charles Bridge to the Lesser Town on the Royal Route at the beginning of Mostecká Street. Medieval bridges were usually fitted with a tower at each end. However, Charles Bridge has two towers on the Lesser Town bank, connected by a large Gothic gate. The lower tower is called Judith's Tower and is older than the Charles Bridge, while the higher tower was built after its completion. Towers with gates formed an important part of the Lesser Town fortifications at the time when the Lesser Town of Prague - today's Lesser Town - was an independent territory. In the event of an invasion by foreign troops, an armed garrison could take refuge in the towers, preventing the enemy from crossing the bridge. But even in peaceful times, armed guards made it clear to those entering that they would not tolerate any riots.
