Owner description: This square is situated on the site of the former moat between the Old and New Towns. The large open space near the medieval city centre inspired the construction of a number of significant buildings at the turn of the 20th century, such as the Municipal House (Obecní dům) near the Powder Tower (Prašná brána), the Hybernia House (Dům U Hybernů) and the Jiří z Poděbrad Barracks. A large part of the square is now a pedestrian zone connecting the two large shopping centres Palladium and Kotva.

Keep in mind that most of the stores are very Americanized. We still love the buildings most of the stores but a lot of the items are cheap.

Clothing seemed to be the exception.

There is market named "Billa" nearby the square which is good place to go shopping for food. The rest is not very exciting. This is where the shuttle stops from the airport.

This square is one of the busiest places in the middle of the town. In fact there are more practical spots around than anywhere else including some popular sightseeing. You can get there by few trams, a bus and the yellow metro line; there are two shopping malls, three grocery stores, dozens of fashion shops, many many restaurants and refreshment corners as well as drugstores, stationer’s, toys and many more. If you come to streets right behind the corner you can find hotels, more restaurants and outdoor equipment shops...simply almost everything you can imagine.
During seasonal feasts there are usually special markets, which are mostly less crowded and more comfortable to enjoy than on Wenceslaus’ or Old Town Square. During summer season there are also regular vegetable and food markets taking place every two or three days a week.
So my conclusion – if you are looking for something and you don’t know where to get it, try it here. Probably it is not farer than few minutes of walk.

Went to Prague in December primarily for Christmas Markets. After the massive disappointment of the Wenceslas Square Christmas Market, we did all the other usual touristy bits in Prague (Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, Castle, ...) so it wasn't until the last morning of our visit that we wandered along to Republic Square and then mainly only to get a couple of photos of the Municipal House.

But, wow, what a square. Municpal House is stunning but also the huge contrast with the Powder Tower next door. This is only the start though to a vibrant square with fantastic transport connections, the best of Prague's Christmas Markets, street entertainment and numerous other shops / cafe's. Even better, unlike the equivalents in Wenceslas and Old Town Squares, the shops and cafe's here are not out to fleece tourists.
