“The best place in Prague- historic and charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

A trip to Prague would not be complete without visiting the old town; it’s got some lovely cobbled backstreets, and courtyards, with some charming little shops and restaurants. The old town square is the main hub of the town with the impressive astronomical clock and tower, and tyn church, go up to the top of the tower for great views of the square.
But beware the square and the people who sell from the stalls there can be very expensive, that goes for the restaurants too, wander around the backstreet a little and you will find plenty of restaurants at much cheaper prices.
The astronomical clock is amazing, not to be missed, and if you feel upto it there are ghost tours you can book that take you around the old town, we did it and it was very interesting, and when the square is all lit up at night the tyn church looks amazing.

Loved the traditional architecture, all the curved alleyways and delightful little cafes on every corner. The old town is just so beautiful.

“Avoid the old Prague ham vendor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

The square is definitely a must if you are visiting Prague. Be careful of the food vendors as they are out to overcharge. I paid 510 cr for a lump of salty meat and a bowl of tasteless cabbage, which I promptly dispose of by giving it to one of the many beggars kneeling around ten square. The churches are beautiful. Take a guided tour for a complete eerie nice.

“Great location for vacation or just a great dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

This is one of my favorite places in one of my favorite cities. This has a charm that cannot be beat. It's where East meets West, and old meets new. You can hear cathedral bells during the day, and disco all night.
