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 the Gothic Týn church on one side and astronomical clock and town hall tower on the other side, this place has all the things that make you believe you are walking in a Grimm brothers’ fairy tale dream.

Beautiful place so much to see and take in . It's kept really clean and is a great place to view really friendly people also .The cobbles stones can be quite sloppy underfoot so be careful

Enjoy the street shows and street food on a beautiful afternoon. This is the old town center--and be sure to check out the clock.

The old town square is a lovely place to wander round. I must say I have never been in such a clean city. Never saw any litter.

A great spot to sit, drink a beer & people watch. The square is surrounded by interesting architecture though I suspect it gets very busy in the height of the tourist season

Built in typical old town fashion this square was lined with historic buildings, shops and eating establishments! Seeing the astronomical click is worth the stroll! Crowded but manageable. We were warned of pick pocketer within the square but had no encounters!

Visited here several times during my trip. Lovely views but would definitely recommend visiting at night. There are often street performers such as singers. During my trip there was someone playing the piano which was stunning with the backdrop of old town.

Have visited in April and December and both times this is a wonderful place to absorb Prague culture! The Christmas market was incredible with a huge variety of food and drink stalls as well as entertainment and handmade crafts and gifts

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

There is typically not a fee, as they are street markets -- if they are like those in Austria and Germany, the only outlay is when you buy a beverage and need to pay a refundable deposit of 2-3€ on the mug. Bon Voyage!

Even those places that take Euros will rarely give change in Euros, so be prepared. Best option is to get Krone from an ATM or use your credit card. I was surprised at how many places do take credit cards. It seemed more... More
