Yes this is a cool story. The king was a jealous prick and threw him off the bridge. I touched the staute. It has given me the ability not to tell secrets to anyone now. I feel awesome. Thanks St.John.

St. John of Nepomuk Statue is one of many along the Charles Bridge, but more visited than most. The telltale is the shiny statue spots where people have stopped to touch or rub (for luck ?) subject to the legend behind them. The right relief...More

One great part of the great bridge. One of those things you have to slow down a lot and tried to forget crowds around.

Not an exciting statue but it is the oldest statue on the bridge. It depicts the priest as a saint before he was killed by King Wenceslas for not revealing the Queen's confessional to the King. What is interesting is that it has become a...More

This is just another statue on the Charles bridge. We did not find it especially impressive, but rather dirty and neglected. We could not tell whether this is the original statue, or replicas, as most of the other statues on the bridge.

This is just one of many statues on the Charles Bridge. St John was thrown off the bridge by King Wenceslas and drowned when he would not reveal what the queen had revealed to him in confessionals. Supposed to be good luck to touch the...More

You will see many statutes when you cross the Charles Bridge. All famous and culturally important but St. John of Nepomuk is probably the most famous. Many swarm around the statute to touch it as good luck to return to Prague. But they do not...More

St. John Nepomuk's statue is easy to find on the Charles Bridge. There are masses of tourists trying to touch it for good luck, for return to Prague, probably for any wish they want granted... Most people know that he was thrown into the river...More

One among many statues in the Charles Bridge, this one definitely draws spontaneous attention. That also means all tourists will stop here and the place will be quite crowded. St. John was drowned on the Vltava by one of the Kings and was canonised by...More
