Incredible. We rented an Airbnb steps away from this square. Well worth it! Old time charm is lovely. We were there in October, so there were live shows on a huge stage. Great restaurants and beautiful people. It does get crowded during the day and...More

Gorgeous town square that's a must-see. Stand in any part of this huge square and look around - you will see nothing but beautiful architecture, cobble stone roads and walkways everywhere.

Very nice looking square lots of good pictures to be taken. However there are some people trying to sell trips but they are not too pushy. Always something going on and lots of bars and restaurants nearby although they are expensive.

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

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

Yes, you will be able to visit other towns by trains & buses. You must see Cesky Krumlov, a beautiful medieval town. It's about 2 & a half hours away.
