Named after King Charles IV, the iconic Charles Bridge is a 2,037ft long pedestrian bridge that dates back to 1402. In branching the Vltava River to connect Prague’s Old Town to the land by Prague Castle, it made Prague an important trade route between Eastern and Western Europe. Lining the bridge, one will find 30 baroque statues that were originally constructed in the 18th century. Today, it remains a popular attraction for tourists, street vendors, and naturally: the occasional pick-pocket.

The Palace of Westminster, or Houses of Parliament, is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords on the shores of River Thames in the City of Westminster in central London, England. Originally built in 1016, it was destroyed in the fire of 1834, only to be rebuilt between 1840-1870. It’s often best recognized by Elizabeth Tower, the iconic clock tower more affectionately referred to as “Big Ben.” The origin of the Big Ben nickname is unknown, but most commonly believed to be after the man who oversaw the bell’s installation: Sir Benjamin Hall.
