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.

We stumbled upon the square by accident, and did not realise where we were. The main attraction is the astronomical clock, but this is currently being renovated, so is covered with scaffold. This aside not much else to see, but OK if you like people...More

Beautiful square where history comes to life; from Middle Ages to Gothic and Baroque. Can be crowded during weekends and nights.

Not my type of place too touristy, busy and expensive but worth walking through for the beautiful architecture.

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
