Prague bridges are bound up with the capital city of Czech Republic for centuries. Prague had its own first stone bridge since 1169. This bridge was called the Judith Bridge, after the wife of the king Vladislav I. It connected the Prague banks of the Vltava on the same place like Charles Bridge. The Judith Bridge was lower but longer. It had more spans. The bridge was collapsed in a flood in 1342.
