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.

It's a gorgeous spot and on Thursday when we were there it was great. The weekend however, was so crowded, you could not move.

Beautifully maintained buildings with a fairytale feel. In any direction you see something hiding you never saw before. Quiet passage ways leading to beautiful churches or quaint courtyards.

In order to know the area and its story, it is prefered to take a guided tour. other wise it might look just the same as any other old cities.

A fantastic place to see either during the day or at night. A huge Xmas tree overlooks the Square and is surrounded by numerous chalet type stalls all surrounded by beautiful buildings

You can't visit Prague without a trip to the Old Town Square and watch the Astronomical Clock go through its routine every hour on the hour.

The Old Town Square is architecturally gorgeous, but also full of locals, tourists, and vendors; as well as tons of restaurants and quaint shops and cool oddball museums. This is the #1 must-see in Prague, and you will not be disappointed!

We came for the Christmas Markets, and were entranced by the architecture. Prague is amazingly clean, and very walkable. The Old Town Square, with the Astronomical Clock is very picturesque.

We were here in November and even though the weather was 45 degrees, the square was always filled with people. It is a great place for grabbing a coffee and people watching, the architecture is amazing, and the atmosphere is friendly.

We were with a tour group from America, it was fabulous. The cobble stones were very hard on the feet and vertigo, but I carry meds with me at all times.

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
