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.

With most towns the town square is the centre of most activity. In December the Christmas markets are in full swing so there is plenty to see and do and eat. There is a viewing platform for selfies as well.

So busy. People from all around the world arriving by the minute. Dry, cold and spiritual place to visit. Enjoy and do not rush it... especially with the Xmas markets...

The Old Town was always busy, but particularly so around weekend time. The clock is under reconstruction so was a little disappointing. Christmas markets were great. The chimneys with Nutella are a must. Awesome shopping. You must pop into Tyn Church for a look.

The xmas market made the square very busy but festive. The street food is particularly good and the atmosphere at night was pleasant. Always felt welcome and safe.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
