“Magnificent, from every point of view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Beautiful and most of all - huge. Yet, despite its size, this square is not overwhelming, it's not a still-standing monument, but a city part full of life. I greatly enjoyed the pleasure of walking through it day or night, and the pleasure of watching people enjoying it.

“Spacious and mythical!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Theres a stone hidden (okay, blended) in with the stones that if you walk over it after 9pm, you'll lose your way home!

The Samson fountain is gorgeous and worthy of postcard photographs.

“Great town square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

I really enjoyed the relaxed character of the town square in Budweis. The design of the square is typical of many Czech towns. It was clean, had enough bars, ice cream stands and cafes to laze around and people watch :)

“Great square, shame about the traffic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

A magnificent city square, with nice statue and beautiful buildings all around it (including the famous Zvon hotel). Several nice cafes and bars. The only downside is the trafiic, if the square was pedestrianized, it would compete to be the most beautiful city square in Europe.
