As per the title, every visitor to Prague should have this on their list. The buildings surround the square are beautiful and include restaurants, churches, hotels and museums. The astronomical clock is located here, and there are performers, stalls and many walking and segway tours start from here. Lots of good places to eat.

I'm not one for history and old buildings and stuff like that. The whole experience was good as to see the difference from where I'm from.

A place in a particular situation of beauty with a medieval quality and mix of architecture and pastel colours contrasted with old stone, by a wide river and a castle on a hill with elevated parklands in the backdrop. Stunning and absolutely loved it.

Old Town Square and City Hall, great X-mas tree-huge,but "assembled" together by branches (!)at least they were real. Too frosty streets and lack of prevention - sands or....so people will not fell on their behinds... Lots of chocolaty-heaven shops for lovers of this fantastic food.

This is the most ideal place to people watch it Prague. All the locals and tourists merge here so this has the best of everything from street pedlars to restaurants, to bars. Though, it has too many tourists, I still loved hanging around here. The square is very pretty.

So much to do in this little part of Prague, this city and this area Is known for being a party town, but the city is essentially what you make of it, there are small markets, plenty of shopping and loads of little museums to do and see. What a little gem.
