Owner description: The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

We were really looking forward to seeing this main attraction only to find it covered up for renovation. Suppose it's a bit like going to London to see Big Ben at the moment!
Still we went up the tower and were rewarded with splendid views across the city and spotted a roof top terrace restaurant which was lovely!

Ok, I understand it’s getting restored and they put a screen there so you can’t still sort of see what would usually happen, but to put bank advertising up as it finished is pretty poor form

Beautiful tower, fab views but was very disappointed as renovationsoon currently taking place, but the whole atmosphere around with Easter stalls simply beautiful and food for all tastes at good prices

Even though most of the clock is still masked in scaffolding, its still worth it. Its in a very scenic area, lots of pubs shops and markets within a few steps.

Old town hall is amazing! The building itself is lovely and there is much to see inside. You could take the elevator to the top floor where you can enjoy the most magnificent view of the city. There are a few exhibitions inside as well. Unfortunately, the astronomical clock was closed for renovation which was a bit of a disappointment.
