Prague Old Town is a wonderful place to wonder through the narrow lane ways and enjoy the wonderful architecture. A great view of the Old Town can be had from the Tower above the Astronomical clock in the main square. It even has a lift for those not wanting to take the stairs.

Old Town Square is the centre of Prague, it is a beautiful square surrounded by the famous astronomical clock, St Nicholas Church and The Church of Our Lady Before Tyn. Plus there is loads of shops, bars and restaurants surrounding the square, and stemming off from the square. A must have to place to visit when coming to Prague.

At the heart of Prague this is a must see. Stunning architecture with cobbled streets and hidden alleys with nooks and crannies everywhere. Lots to explore, see and eat! Would recommend!

Architecture, spires, gargoyles, towers, alleyways, arches - seemed every way you turned there was something else to go wow at! Ignore the tat and massage shops, look up and beyond. Wonderful.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
