It is hard to get a good view of the clock due to crowds. Just a short walk from the Charles Bridge. Square is charming.

A great piece of history and only cost 110 Czech crowns (€3.50). A must see as it gives a great view of the city. I really enjoyed it.

very nice building, the clock is superb - amazing design and very sweet, I sat down and had a cup of hot chocolate next to it waiting for the bells to ring, so I could see the "show" - well the 12 discipels came to view when 2 doors slides open and you can see small wood statues rotate inside...

An intriguing clock with a colourful history. Worth a visit - on the half-hour. Every hour there are multiple anti-climaxes as people look at each other is if to ask "Is that it?" Yes folks, unfortunately that's all it does. Not really worth hanging around in a crowd, but get there when you have more room to really appreciate the... More

Full of excitements, actvities and people. The square is full of interesting buldings and monuments. The clock puts on a show every hour on the hour. Just hold on to your valuables when everyone looks up.

Go up in the Tower. Great views. I was a little nervous walking around the top because I have a disabled child that wanted "to look" a little to close to the edge. But it was all good. My kids loved the glass elevator. We were in town close to Easter and the square had many Easter Stalls in it.... More

The tower is a must-go place, as it offers an amazing view over Prague, and the tickets are quite cheap. The tower is of course crowded with tourists, but nevertheless it's worth it. The astronomical clock, on the other hand, is indeed decorative and also interesting in itself, but the so-called "show" the clock plays every hour was a real... More

I could have sat in this square all day. As it was Easter, lots of stalls to look at, different food stalls, live entertainment. Definitely worth a visit. Watch out for pickpockets although there was a police presence.

This is a must to see place when visiting Prague. Very romantic and charming experience while travelling through the narrow streets of a medieval town in Prague 1. The clock chimes every round hour and everyone just stands there waiting for that moment. This place is massively overcrowded, so be ready for a hustle. The square near the clock is... More
