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.

The square was decorated for Easter and was very festive. It was beautifully lit at night. The shops were a mix of souvenir shops and some food vendors mainly.

Not sure what the Old Town Square looks like without the christmas market, but the old town square was packed! Tons of people, tons of vendors, tons of festivities and the large christmas tree. I assume without the market, the square is open and allows for better traffic flow.

We stayed right in the middle of everything. We were five minutes walking to about anything we wanted to go to. We entered the hotel through a Steak House Restaurant. The only thing I was not happy about was having to go upstairs , no elevator.

The old city of Prague is one of the most interesting and beautiful city in Europe. The architecture of the old building, churches and bridges is excellent and stunning. Besides the fact the old city offers a wide range of good restaurants and bars. The night walks trough the city are amazing and beautiful.
