The critical report states that many errors have occurred in the repairs. It also says that the current practice of craftsmen is “rogue” and completely unacceptable. However, the Minister of Culture Václav Jedlička thinks that they did not cause the destruction or serious damage to the bridge. Although he did not forget to point out that even in the 21st century, restoration work must be carried out carefully and sensitively. The repair of the bridge takes place during operation and is monitored by the general public. There are heated discussions between the monuments, but they claim that in order to meet the plans, it is not possible to work with the original construction techniques and materials with which the bridge was built. It would be not only very time consuming but also very expensive. Charles Bridge was built between 1357 and 1402 by order of King Charles IV. It connects two banks of the Vltava River, on one side it ends with the Gothic Old Town Tower and on the other Malostranská Tower. Until 1707, the bridge was unadorned, but over the course of seven years it was fitted with 30 statues. The wars and uprisings did not hurt him in any way, he also withstood a number of floods, even a hundred-year-old water in 2002. Perhaps he will “survive” extensive restoration work and will be one of Prague’s unforgettable sights in the coming years.
