History of Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge founded by Czech King Charles IV. in 1357. The founding date of the bridge was probably carefully calculated and had its numerical mysticism and astrological significance. The legends say that the first stone was laid by the King himself on July 9, 1357, at 5:31am, since that date corresponds to a favorable alignment of the Sun and Saturn.
