“Fairy tale brought to reality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This old town made me feel like a little girl inside a fairy tale setting. Pretty much a real Disneyland.

Prague became one of my favorite cities in europe because of this old town. I can sit all day in a cafe and just enjoy the view around me.

The towers, the clock, the pastel colored buildings.. Everything just looks perfect!

A must for everyone visiting the city (can't be avoided really, everyone gravitates here!) Gorgeous buildings and history and lots to see/do.

“Absolutely Enchanting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

My husband and I stayed at hotel which was just half a block from the astronomical clock. This old town square is absolutely enchanting. When we rounded the corner and saw this beautiful square with its old medieval buildings, the fairytale like tower, the church towers and the tower where the astronomical clock is at, it took our breaths away. This is a truly beautiful square--you feel like you have walked into a fairytale. It is popping with life and people and there is always something going on here. There is are stalls that sell food and their Prague ham, which is on a spit, is truly delicious. This square has jewelry stores, souvenir shops, restaurants, etc. You can find everything here. At night, the square is alive with people walking around. This is a very lively square to be in. This is also a very central location to the other attractions in Prague.

“Astronomical Clock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

From the astronomical clock to the churches, to the little food stalls to buy Trdelnik (unsure if I spelled that right), this location is very quaint and beautiful !
