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.

Old Town Square located in city center of Prague, here you can find the old city hall, great clock, many food stalls and shops. I visited there on autumn so the weather was really nice.

The square was huge and full of tourists so we really didn't want to spend much time in this area - especially after learning that the clock was covered and was still under renovation. There was a nice stage performance in the evenings but with...More

Prague has a lovely old town, but for all of the beauty of the buildings and setting these are becoming overshadowed by the rampant consumerism and associated naffness. Today the square featured Mickey and Minnie, a giant panda (heaven help the person inside this fur...More

We spent two days in Old Town. The Architecture and culture is everywhere and you find yourself becoming a part of it. Be prepared to do plenty of walking, shopping, and enjoying the local brew and foods.

Well worth calling in here, but it is crowded in summer, many shops and restaurant around, but all more expensive than those a few streets back.

The fabulous St. Thomas Church (Josefska 28/8) definitely has services on Saturdays. Normally at 12:15 and 18:00 in English. Check their website for more details on which chapel, etc.

I use my Charles Schwan's bank account debt card when I travel. It refunds all Atm fees worldwide and gives the bank exchange rate.
