Check out the magical Charles bridge story!
In 1357 King Charles IV commissioned the construction of a bridge that would connect the two riverbanks of Prague. His goal was to make Prague an important trading route between the East and the West. The king wanted to build a bridge that would last for hundreds of years and survive any floods or wars.
He called upon royal astronomers to study the universe and the placement of the stars in order to determine the ideal moment to place the foundation stone. He believed there is a specific alignment of stars that would protect the bridge for the future.
Finally, the time chosen was July 9th, 1357 at 5:31 AM. If we arrange the numbers we get the following sequence that is still carved on the Charles bridge tower: 135797531.
It is a sequence of ascending and descending odd numbers that can be read the same backward or forward.
Charles bridge has indeed survived many battles and natural disasters and it has stood for 660 years. It is now one of the top attractions in Prague. You will always find an endless number of artists, musicians, and caricaturists as well as souvenir kiosks.
It is the ideal place to be if you want to admire the best of mystical and enchanting Prague!
