Prague's Art Nouveau Bridge Sep 27, 2011
Čechův most or Czech Bridge spans the Vltava from the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) to Letna Park and the Letenska Hills. It's a very attractive bridge and I think it's overlooked by visitors.
The 554 foot (169 m) bridge was built in 1905-1908. It incorporates Art Nouveau design elements, notably the four pillars that anchor each end of the bridge, the figures reaching out from the stone balustrades, and the iron street lights. Each of the four pillars is topped with a bronze Winged Victory figure standing atop a street light. Definitely a combination of aesthetics with practicality! The iron arches and series of light standards along the roadway are illuminated at night.
The bridge is open to vehicular traffic, pedestrians, and trams. Prague river tour cruises depart form the quay adjacent to the bridge.
