Old town is great. Numerous church's to visit, the clock tower, and shopping. Shoul not be missed. The clock chimes on the hour. It lasts only 17 seconds, so don't blink. Watch the skeleton pull the rope to ring the bell.

Bit crowded at times, as expected, but really charming. Some of the best restaurants are around here.

Narrow cobbled streets, amazing architecture, chapels, shops, cafes, bars, spend some time wandering around stopping occasional to stare. This is what a gentle holiday is all about.

Even if you do not appreciate architecture, you will love the Old Town. It goes on and on and around every corner something different. Not overly garish, just awe inspiring.

Simply beautiful. Take at least 3-4 hours to just wander. I brought a "Prague city guide" with me and identified different points of attraction on the way. Try to blend in, although the atmosphere is very touristic, not local, but it's nice anyway. I never felt like it was over-crowded or tiring (but maybe this is due to visiting in... More

The old town gives you quite nice feeling, you'll always be amazed with the historical architecture and beauty of the place. It's perfect for walking around and have a nice czech dinner in one of the great restaurants nearby!

The Old Town in Prague takes you back hundreds of years. Both during the day, and at night it is a beautiful place to visit - lots of fascinating buildings, small cobbled streets and a lovely friendly atmosphere.

A must visit, wonderful old architecture, excellent sights, but saturated with expensive tourist shops, all selling the same stuff and very bad food vendors. Use your imagination to think away the bad and the ugly and concentrate on the good
