The centre of everything. Lots of tourists. The market around the square is nice and lots of local foods can be sampled. Restaurants were a little more expensive here but not outrageous and lots to choose from.

Lovely old town Prague is complimented with this fantastic square and clock tower. If you're ever visiting Prague, ensure you visit this square.

Very good place to go. There is always something happening there and it is very central. If you can wait for it, you should definitely see the astronomical clock's show.

This is where it all happens, the astronomical clock, the magnificent civic and historic buildings, the street performers, horse & carriage tours, history and beauty in bucketfuls! Lots of great restaurants, hotels, shops, theatres, museums, snacks and open-air eating. Don't miss it!

Old Town Square is crowded but it definitely worth the time. Be sure to be near the Old Town Square Clock Tower on the hour to see the medieval, astronomical clock on the facade of the building display the twelve apostles as the clock strike on the hour.

I was on the Old Town Square during World Cup. They had a huge screen showing football. What a wild experience. Lines for beer were almost as long as the lines for the restrooms! The atmosphere was truly international as you could hear every language being spoken imaginable. Ultra Cool!!

One of the best squares we have seen. Numerous restaurants and fantastic architecture with history at every turn. Good service and a little more expensive than side streets but very cheap compared with English prices which would be 3 times more for 3 times worse service.

A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
