“Fascinating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

You can't miss out on this part of town if you are visiting Prague. There is history all around you and beautiful buildings and impressive architecture on every corner. Make sure you dont spend all your time in the old town square, but take time to venture through the narrow cobblestone streets stretching all over the old town.

“City Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This has a lot of history around it, you can see age old buildings and architecture, there is an astronomical clock and you can walk around the narrow lanes to explore Prague. You can walk to the prague castle from here, its about 10-15 mins walk.

“Explore away from Old Town Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Whilst the Old Town Square is surrounded by beautiful architecture, it does become crowded and I understand the restaurants are quite expensive there. Try rambling down the side streets, the buildings a just as impressive and the eateries far less commercial and expensive. I don't agree that it is difficult to get lost, you can usually find your way to tourist spots by following the brown tourist signs.

“A lot to see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

A lot of little side streets to explore! The prices of meals and drinks tend to be a lot cheaper if you choose one away from the main squares and attractions
