Take a stroll around Stare Mesto and feast your eyes on architecture and sights. Be prepared for loads of tourists, but it's worth it!

Very intersting with all those squares, buildings etc. There are several architecture styles you can see there. It's always crowded, even if it's rainy. The way from the Charles bridge to the old town has some special atmosphere.

see and feel the spirit of old times, to be missed. When you're there, you have to reassure and let the spirit felt, invisible floss time. invisible threads that we perform when we get there

You could spend ages wandering round the old town. So much history down every turning. Beautiful architecture. Lots of bars restaurants and shops. Take time to sit in the Old Town Square and watch/listen to the many performers there.
