Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument – 4

This monument standing on Charles Bridge (Karlúv Most)across the River Vltavar in Prague. According to Catholic legend St Jan Nepomucy was tossed from the bridge because he didn’t want to betray Queen Zophie, when King Václav IV suspected her extra-marital activities.
We visited his statue which legend says brings good luck to those who touch it. We aren’t convinced by this but it did make it nice and shiny.

We took this on our trip to Prague in 2006
