Building Bridges

I’ve crossed the historic Charles Bridge in Prague dozens of times and never stopped to consider what an amazing feat of engineering it took to build this beautiful structure.The animation below details how theย  famous 14th-century Charles Bridge was built across the Vltava River in the heart of the city.

 

The digital model “Charles Bridge โ€“ construction of a pillar and vaulted field in the 14th century” was created for the virtual exhibition Prague of the time of Charles IV. The project is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic as part of the National Celebrations of the 700th Anniversary of the Birth of Emperor Charles IV.
