Proudly wearing his Emperor's name, Charles Bridge is the epicenter of the Czech spirit.
Medieval beliefs have attributed a magical power to odd numbers and arranged them in a
special way to create a pyramidal symbol of power.
Thus, the palindrome 135797531 sculpted on the Old Bridge Tower at the eastern end of the bridge
refers to the exact time and date of the placement of the bridge’s foundation stone,
determined by royal astrologers as an auspicious time - July 9, 1357 at 5.31 am.
