“A People Watching Symphony”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Wide open spaces lined with historic buildings criss-crossed with trolley tracks. Here you will find classic little cafes, interesting retail shops and the usual tourist shops. A great central spot to begin your explorations.

“Love this place !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

For sitting, people watching, enjoying the sites and sipping on a good beer, Old Town Square is fantastic. Always milling with people and loud and crowded, find a spot, sit, and enjoy. I loved being able to take a break here and just watch the people. It's close enough to most attractions (though, admittedly everything is Prague is close enough to everything else), I loved the mix of the old with the modern.

“Beware of dishonest snack food vendor rip off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

BE VERY VERY CAREFUL when your food vendor is handing change back to you when you are purchasing food from them esp. staying away from the place that sell traditional snack called Tradclnik (rolled doughnut on open BBQ. The lady who handled my sell told me it's going to cost 59kc and I gave her a bill of 200kc for change, I was getting 50kc for chanhe instead of 150kc. I tried to argued but the lady insisted I gave he r 100Kc.
