Photographer's Note

Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Malá Strana, crossing the Vltava river. It is said that egg yolks were mixed into the mortar to strengthen the construction of the bridge.

Charles Bridge has survived many floods, most recently in August 2002 when the country experienced the worst flood in the past 500 years - so the egg yolks must not have been such a bad idea.

This view shows the water wheel of the Grand Priory Mill on the Certovka (Devil's Creek) which separates Mala Strana from Kampa Island.
