“Easter break...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Old Town Square was a happening spot. There were so many restaurants and bars and vendors that we enjoyed it. Usually when walking to different attractions, we always ended up passing Old Town Square.

“MAGICAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

My favourite historical square. A 'must see' if you go to Prague ! Visit the church, and go to the top of the Astronomical Clock Tower, for amazing views. Watch / listen to the clock, on the hour. Drinks etc, are more expensive in the square, but worth having at least one, to soak up the atmosphere of the place.

“The best area of Prague”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Of course, this place is why Prague is worldwide famous. Just take your time to stroll around in the majestic square and the small alleys, have fun, eat a trdelnik and enjoy the feel of taking a trip back to the Middle Ages (the good part).
