Yes, Prague is nice in the summer, but it is the nicest place in winter. This square is like christmass heaven. Big thee, christmass food, carols, drinks, and all different things.

It's the oldest part of Prague and located on the Vlatva River at the centre of Prague. The buildings are quite old and look like monuments. It's ideal for shopping and well worth a visit. Anything you need you will find it here but be wary of tourist traps.
