The Old Town Square is a must and well worth visiting. Glorious architecture, an impressive skulptur, the astronomical clock, and several museums, galleries and quite a few restaurants as well as some market stalls. The 'but' is, of course, that it is often so crowded...More

With the Christmas market in full swing an amazing place to visit. I’m sure it’s impressive the rest of the year but was just magical with the market, busy but not overpowering

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

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.
