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.

What an amazing way to spend a day! There is so much to do and see here. The Astronomical Clock, the beer brewers, the restaurants, the churches, the shops, all these things in the one space! So much going on all day long. Music, laughter,...More

It's beautiful and a great starting point, just don't eat or drink there as there are many other cheaper and better places. This is where ALL the tourists go, so it's also where all the pickpockets in town go.

Grat to go visit. If you get hungry, don't eat around there, it may be expensive. If you walk little off from Central area you find better price place to eat.

The clock tower was under repair and behind scaffolding. It still had some striking views, in particular the Jan Hus monument and the Church of Our Lady before Tyn. Very touristy and very crowded.

Lots of renovations. Which is fine. But not pretty for touring. You'd need a tour director or audio tour

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

Be prepared to convert to Koruna's as many places do not take credit cards, most notably taxis. When we were there, 1000 korunas were the equivalent to a little less than five USD, so it takes some getting used to. Euros... More
