The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.

If you're in Prague you have to visit Old Town Square (and you probably will even by accident). Looks great at night.

Nostalgic and open square. One of the nicest old squares I have visited. Would love to go back there some day!

Be prepared - there will be crowds, and lots of them! But part of the experience is in the immersion of the atmosphere and here you'll see structures and architectures that are quite a sight. Well worth the trouble.

Old town is really beautiful and definately worth a visit. Be aware that the old town hall is under construction so you wont be able to go inside. The restaurants near by are very over-priced and under NO circumstances should you exchange money at the...More

Nice to be there and see it but a little to many tourists. One of the places though you must visit in the city.

a cornucopia of sights and sounds. street performers, musicians, horse & buggy rides all assault the senses - but in a surprisingly pleasant way! at some point during the day every visitor to prague will saunter by, so a visual feast of human diversity. the...More

Crowds of tourists, unfriendly shop owners and waiters. Prague is tired of its tourists. However it is a very beautiful city

No visit to Prague is complete without visiting the old town square. Beautiful architecture with a good mix of shops, bars and cafes. Very easy to find just off of the Charles bridge although it can get busy especially when the clock chimes.

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

Be prepared to convert to Koruna's as many places do not take credit cards, most notably taxis. When we were there, 1000 korunas were the equivalent to a little less than five USD, so it takes some getting used to. Euros... More

Both cities have various walking tours available. Some are free others you would need to book. Your hotel would probably help you. We had a private guide in Prague and must admit she was excellent and worth it. A... More
