Currently one of two most important squares in Prague and maybe Czechia and the most important square in the past. It's often crowded and overpriced, but that's predictable. Don't miss the Astronomical clock ("orloj") and it's a good idea to climb to the observation deck of Old Town Hall. If you're visiting during Christmas or Easter, nice fair takes place... More

We were lucky enough to see the clock chiming on the hour. The history behind it is interesting. The square has lots of entertainment. There are loads of side streets with shops, bars and restaurants.

Rain or shine - and we have experienced both! - Old Town Square is the beating heart of Prague. Here you see the architectural gem of Prague, and you get to savor the sweet aromas of roasted ham, cinnamon bread, and more. It is not to be missed! Truly enchanting!!

I was fortunate to get exceptionally beautiful weather during my short stay in Prague. I did manage to spend much of it outdoors in the lovely city.
