A fabulous town hall on an amazing square. It is certainly worth a stop to listen to the clock and visit the town hall. Unfortunately the clock is going through restoration, so you don't get to see it in all of its glory... but still...More

Following the cleaning and renovation work this clock is more stunning then when we saw it 17years ago, an informative display about the work carried out was very good. The views from the tower are amazing. Would highly recommend

What an amazing clock that was built so long ago! Really worth fighting the crowds and waiting to see it ring on the hour! So intricate and colorful.

Be sure to go on the hour. It starts at 9 AM, and chimes on the hour until 9 PM. Go Early in the morning to avoid the throngs of tourist. It’s remarkable, and reminds me of Disney World, but 500 years earlier!

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
