We went to Prague at beginning of December and it was lovely to come to Old Town Square when the Christmas Market was here and drink hot mead and eat and listen to music. Lots of people there especially around the clock when it was due to chime so recommend you pick your spot early. Lots of lovely shops on... More

Very central to a lot of Prague's attractions and if you go during a holiday (like Easter or Christmas) there are lovely markets. I advise going in the evening as well as... More

Nice place, nice Astronomical clock. Entertaining band that played most days there during my visit. Market stalls there too where we bought trdelnik (the spelling of this is almost definitely way off) and you have to eat some of this pastry in prague!

It looks like it was right out of a fairy tale. Great town square with lots of options for seeing some of the main attractions in Prague. Make sure to go back towards the end of the day to enjoy some live music after a long day of walking. Did this both evenings and it was great!
