The view of the spires lit up at night is amazing. Also, the crowds die down somewhat at night, so it feels more like a city rather than just a tourist attraction.

The towers are perfectly lit in the night sky, makes the Old Square look so welcoming. Would of liked chance to go inside, but also time didn't allow. Another top tourist spot.

I did a solo trip to Prague and spent a lot of my time here! The buildings were wonderful to look at, the people interesting and there always seemed to be something going on! Very busy and crowded but sometimes not so much

It will be crowded, but the square is amazing, all the colors and buildings around it make it unique. If you're going there make sure you climb the Old Town Hall tower, the view is well worth the price.

this is probably the most visited historic square in Prague and it can get very busy. But the architecture and atmosphere makes it worthwhile to visit.

Iconic square, the location for many a grand photo/selfie backdrop of spires and roofs. Yes, it can get very busy esp. near the Astronomical Clock, as others have noted but in my experience it ebbs and flows depending on time. Mornings before 9am were far...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 photos from Charles Bridge should be beautiful, especially when it’s quiet. To be certain, It probably is best to go there first and then on to Old Square. Before 8 a.m. the Square should not be too crowded either... More
