See the Astronomical Clock (Get there ten minutes before the hour to see it properly.) Raining? Get a coffee in the front seats under the umbrella roof of the El Toro Steakhouse right across the street... great view from there, but truly expensive coffee. Good news is that they also accept Euros. Be sure to look clear up to the... More

Beautiful clock.. Amazing the way it works. Very attractive. It's true whenever u pass by it you will stop & have a look again & might also click 2-3 photos again. Yes little crowded & hard to click photo without others being clicked.

I think the clock is one of the most recognized attractions of Prague. And it deserves it. It's very unusual and no wonder so many people want to see it. I was impressed but the square bit next to the clock is always crowded so if you want to take a nice pic with it, good luck with that!:)

The clock is generally the starting point of the many walking tours of Prague, so it is easy to find. While it's easy to hear the clock striking the hour, this is only a small part of the experience. If you want to experience the marvels of this clock, you should be sure to do your research first: read what... More

Buy two tickets here, one to climb the Atronomical Clock Tower for amazing views of the old town, and the second for the historical underground tour. You get to go down to the (I think 14th Century) rooms that are beneath the old town hall and tower. Very interesting!

The building is on main Prague Sq. with lots of terraces of nice restaurants and the Astronomical Clock is an unique piece of art in a very old building with a high tower that you can visit.

Outside with a guide book is probably all you need to do. I was in Prague for more than a week so had the luxury of time and decided to go into a lot of historic buildings. Saw Mary's Chamber, presbytery, Saints at noon (from the inside), Council Hall, basement, etc. All very nice but not a "must" see. The... More
