The renovation of Prague’s Charles Bridge has come under criticism for being too hasty, the daily Pravo reported on Friday. Companies renovating one of Prague’s most significant monuments have been criticized by the Culture Ministry for replacing some of the original stones of the 14th century bridge too fast. The renovation has also been criticized by a leading Prague preservationist NGO, the Club for Old Prague. The Culture Ministry’s Monument Inspection Authority will not look into the renovation procedures. Renovation of the entire bridge is expected to be completed by 2020.
