The astronomical clock was fascinating to see with its architecture. Crowds of people waited to see the clock strike the hour. It was such a build up but when it happened it was slightly disappointing after the long wait. The Old Town Hall Tower is well worth a visit. From up the top you get an amazing new view of... More

This is an attractive area of Prague but it is visited by large numbers of tourists so tends to be rather crowded.

The astronomical clock is a nice piece of art and clockwork, it's a must see while in Prague (don't forget to go when the hour changes to see it work). However, the highlight for me was the 360° view of Prague and the Old Town Square you get from the clock tower. Amazing! (Price for student was CK70).

Lovely town square and astronomical clock interesting to watch the figures coming out of the clock. Usually buskers and entertainers performing there. Several out odour cafés and places to relax and enjoy a beer or cold drink.

Be prepared for a busy crowd in front of the clock! However it's a bargain to go up inside the tower and see the fab views.

Never seen such a clock as this well worth taking a photo of or even a video (old hat I know). Enjoy the view from one of the local bars or restaurant's.

One known attractions that is on the must see list. Just moderately interesting. A lot of spectators, and all the outdoors restaurants Close by makes it easy to pend a little time here on a nice day.

The impressive thing about this place is that, despite the thousands of tourists visiting it, you can escape neither the feeling of an earlier era admiring the architecture of its buildings nor a sense of sadness caused by the obvious difficulties to maintain them.
