The vibe in this square is awesome. We were in time for the Jazz Festival and although I am not a jazz fan, the vibe was just awesome. Downside of course, is the huge crowds there - there is a reason for that!

This is the most beautiful square in Prague, imho. No visitor to Prague could miss this one. The famous Tyn church, astronomical clock, St. Nicholas Church, and many beautiful buildings are there. There a lots of shops around that area. During the days it could be packed with people but in the evenings the square is much more quiet and... More

Very big square , makes you feel living in the past with all that imagination being royalty and passing the people. You will see horse carriages coming,going around,entertainers performing. Lots of excitement happening here.

Many good restaurants, cafes, the Astrological Clock, shopping, etc. There was nothing I didn't like about Prague or the Town Square. There's good nightlife here and it's safe to walk around at night on the main streets.
