“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We spent a lot of time here - the Tyn Church is quite spectacular and the astronomical clock is also a must-see. Very nice restaurants all around the square but avoid the vendors selling from the cars - especially the potato concoction which is a dreadful waste of money.
Lots of street performers to keep things interesting for the kids--and adults too!

“Classic "old"Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Old Town Square is truly one of the coolest places to visit in all of Prague. The history and eclectic architectural styles of the buildings is amazing and quite interesting, if you're in to that kind of thing. They've all be restored and are fun to look at. Take a moment and stop at one of the many cafes, enjoy a coffee or a beer and just people watch. While there is quite a bit to do in and around Prague, take the time to relax and really soak in the atmosphere of one of the truly great cities in Europe. That can easily be done right in Old Town Square.

“Great City Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I visited this city square in mid-September. It is alive with people and history, surrounded by baroque buildings, palaces, and the ubiquitous spires that characterize the City. The square is jammed with cafes, craftsmen (and women) and street entertainers as well as budding businessmen who cater to tourist and offer everything from City tours to river boat sightseeing. The astonomical clock on one side of the square and the municipal hall on the other are hallmarks of a tremendous piazza in between. Well-worth visiting..

“Old Town Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Amazing clock - we stayed across the square and the hourly massing of people of all ages to see 600-year-old technology never got ... well old.
