Another must go spot in a Prague visit... rather obvious. Take some time to really look at the buildings in the square and reflect on all that they have seen over the ages.

Old Town Prague definitely delivered with its amazing character and architecture. Just keep an eye out of your surroundings especially when the area is over crowded. We will be back!

Old Town Square is something that must be visited when in Prague. The Square does get very busy and crowded.There are many little shops, as well as restaurants, art galleries, and just general sightseeing. While it was not my favorite part of Prague I'm definitely glad we made a day of it.
