Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic
Its remains can still be seen in the basement of the house №82 on the Lusatian Seminary Street. Then, in 1357, the construction of a new bridge began and continued until the beginning of the XV century. Prague is full of legends, and Charles Bridge is no exception. Thus, according to research by a Czech historian, the first stone of the bridge was laid on 07.09.1357 at 5:31. If we write the number in the form: 1 3 5 7 (year) 9 (day) 7 (month) 5 (h), 31 (minutes), it turns as the ascending and descending series of odd numbers. In those days, a lot of attention has been given to the magic of number, and they believed that in such a way the bridge would stand for centuries.
According to another legend, Saint John of Nepomuk was thrown into the river from the Charles Bridge. Five stars are allegedly seen in the place of his falling into the water, and since then the saint is depicted with five stars overhead. This place is marked with a cross walled in the railings and two copper nails near it. There is also a belief that if you touch one of the sculptures on the bridge and make a wish, it will surely come true. And if people in love will kiss and make a wish on the bridge, it will also come true and they will be happy.
