This is one of the most charming squares I've seen in Europe, with colourful and varied facades on the buildings that face onto it. The painted designs on the buildings are fascinating and unusual. A surprising treat.

Colorful, historical buildings and a big church around the square seems so nice and exotic. There are many cafes and restaurats inside. They are not so expensive. You can find easily what you want like food, ice cream, coffee, alcohol, steak and etc. Also The most crowded place in the city.

Interesting and colourful buildings, and plenty of cafe's to relax in to take in the scenery and atmosphere. Look towards the clock tower of the town hall at midday and you'll see (and hear) the trumpet player.

Restaurants surrounding the square, great place to relax with a drink or dinner. All have the same menu though! The goats coming out at mid day are underwhelming but the crowds gathering to see them are fun

The old market square has some lovely architecture & of course you must see the clock at noon each day (arrive early to get your spot as it gets busy). There are plenty of places to eat here too.

This square is absolutely gorgeous! Nice for a leisurely stroll. Lots of places to eat and drink here. Some really great restaurants. Prices are not too high either. We ate in rybna 95. Was amazing! Had fillet steak that you could cut with a butter knife! Nice place to sit and watch the world go by.
