Charles Bridge in Prague will be in the centre of attention on Sunday night as it is celebrating its 650th anniversary. Founded in 1357 by Roman Emperor and Czech King Charles IV and later adorned with Baroque statues, the bridge is one of the major tourist attractions in the capital. On Sunday, the celebrations begin on Old Town Square with historic markets and tournaments and will peak at 5:31 on Monday morning when the Archbishop of Prague will bless the corner-stone of the bridge.
