Charles Bridge is the oldest remaining bridge in Prague. The name Charles Bridge was suggested by K.H. Borovsky and it became popular around the year 1870.  Foundation stone had been laid down by the Charles IV. on 9. June 1357 at 5:31 am. Charles IV was obsessed with numerology, so he chose this date and time on purpose. If we write the numbers down in the following way: 1357 (year) 9 (day)  7 (month) 531 (time) – we will get the ascending and descending scale of numbers that has its acme at 9. There is a lot more magic hidden between stones of the Charles Bridge. 

NATIONAL THEATER

The National Theater was firstly open in the year 1881. The very first play that opened the theater was opera Libuše by bedřich Smetana. Although at the time of the premiere  Bedřich Smetana was already deaf, he managed to conduct an orchestra through the entire play. After that, few plays took place there and then the theater was closed for the entire summer so the workers could finish reconstructions. Due to their carelessness, the fire engulfed the entire building. Reconstructions took place almost immediately. In the year 1883, the theater was reopened with the opera Libuše.
