Wonderful Square which no visit to Prague would be complete without. The astronomical clock on the Old Town Hall, the church of St . Nicholas, the monument to Jan Hus and the church of Our Lady before Tyn can be found here.

This place is always busy, mostly with tourists though. It's very central and has a few interesting buildings. We passed by here several times.

Admire, watch, breath but shop and drink elsewhere. the service you get is often overpriced and you will find more charming places in surrounding streets

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
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.
