Owner description: 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.

A lovely place to spend hours and people watch. It was very busy and the crowds gather in the 100s to view the Astronomical clock strick on every hour. All cobbled streets so flats are a must!!

This is where all of the "Prague magic" happens. Plan on spending at least the better part of one day exploring the Old Town.

Wonderful place,it's beauty is majestic. Come early in the morning or later in the evening so you can take all of the pictures and avoid tourist crowd. Heart of the city from which all others attractions are very close by.

Beautiful square even in the rain, fantastic architecture from different epochs. Small galleries and restaurants and bars dotted around the square. Great image of the old black church rising up from behind newer buildings.
