Grand square with a lot of attractions around. When you travel to Prague, it is easy to orientate all attractions from the old main square. A lot of tourists, sometimes too many. Funny street performers.

This is the center and the hart of the town. If you get lost, which we did a few times, you just find your way back here. Close to here is the Tyn church which is a must see. We went to a concert here...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

The fabulous St. Thomas Church (Josefska 28/8) definitely has services on Saturdays. Normally at 12:15 and 18:00 in English. Check their website for more details on which chapel, etc.
