Every day after four o'clock in the afternoon you can meet a lamplighter on the Charles Bridge.
He moves from lantern to lantern and lits the historical gas street lighting with a burning wick on a long pole. His route begins at the Old Town Bridge Tower and continues to the Lesser Town and back.

The gas lights operate automatically, Advent is the only time in the year when they are lit up by the lamplighter.
