Photographer's Note

There is a plaque fixed to a statue on Charles Bridge, depicting a man being thrown off the bridge.
The statue represents Saint John of Nepomuk, the court priest of King Wenceslas IV. Legend has it that he was killed by request of the king, because he refused to tell the king about the queen's confession.
Touching the statue is a Prague ritual. It is supposed to bring good luck and to ensure that you return to Prague soon.
