    If you visit Prague you cannot miss this square. I climbed the old town city hall for a wonderful view of the square and the entire city. Prague is a wonderful city, full of culture and pride. I would love to return there someday.

    To really understand the clock, it is best to have a guide to explain what to watch for and the meaning of the various events. It is quite interesting with the many things the clock displays especially considering the age of the movements. Gets very crowded around the clock close to the time of the show.

    Franz Kafkas rotating statue in Prague is so far one of the most interesting modern art pieces you can visit for free in Prague. Truly a unique form of art.

    The site is small, but well worth visiting because of its historical significance. You can add to your appreciation of the site by reading about it in advance, and watching the movie "Anthropoid."

    We went a few minute before they opened and were the only ones there. We had the garden all to ourselves for about 30 minutes. My only complaint is that they had the gardener trimming the bushes during our visit. Couldn’t they have done this maintenance before 10AM? Who wants to be in a beautiful garden with the sound of hedge trimmers and leaf blowers? Poor management, hence the 4 star review. Avoid a hot day here… you will not enjoy it. This place can be hard to find as it is not at the edge of the street. You need to go through a garage arch until you see the entrance to it. The garden is not visible from the street.

    The museum is in the convent of St Agnes, which is quite an impressive building in its own right. The collection is composed mostly of church art, with Madonnas abounding. The museum is arranged in mostly chronological order, with the later artworks towards the end. While the museum is very impressive, the repetition of the subject matter can become difficult on the senses, so anyone who is not into church art in at least some sense should probably check some of the other museums.

    The Waldstein Palace is where the Senate meets. They have a few rooms open for visits on Saturdays which are very nice to tour and have English information. The visit is free. The gardens are also lovely and free to visit. Definitely worth a stop.

    Center of Prague, with strong historical significance, especially in terms of the 1989 "Velvet Revolution" and the formation of the Czech Republic.
    Plenty of people about the square, in front of the National Museum, and plenty of shops and restaurants lining the streets on either side.
    It's very busy, which makes it attractive.
    It's centrally located, easy to get to and free - not a bad combination.
    I recommend you visit the square.

    This is a hanging sculpture of Sigmund Freud. Its interpretations are quite varied, depending on the particular source accessed.

    One such interpretation: Freud had a severe phobia about his own death - should he hold on or let go. In the end, I think Freud chose assisted suicide. (Apparently, he also had a fear of heights.)

    Another interpretation:
    The powerlessness and hopelessness of man in the modern world, but not willing to let go. Why the subject is Freud may be related to the question of what role intellectuals would play in modern times.

    Whatever the interpretation, the structure is certainly novel..

    Situated along Husova Street. If you’re heading down towards Charles Bridge from the Old Town Square, along Karlova, keep an eye open for Karlova’s intersection with Husova. Turn left and keep going until Husova Street becomes Na Perstyne (~ 210 m.). Then look up.

    I love nothing better than jumping the tram or metro down to Peace Square ( Namesti Miru ) in the exciting Vinohrady District,emerging from the metro you are confronted by the beautiful Church Of St Ludmila.
    This is such a beautiful church ,twin clock faced spires look amazing,a fantastic facade,constructed between 1888-1892 from designs from famed architect Josef Macker,a great example of Neo Gothic architecture ,it's a landmark building ,very photogenic ,makes for some great photographic opportunities ,if you're in the Vinohrady District it's a church I highly recommend you check out and easy to locate on Namesti Miru.

    Many of the images here on Tripadvisor show the Memorial to the Victims of Communism on the Hunger Wall page. This is not the case - the Hunger Wall is a defensive wall built centuries ago in response to a famine (hence the Hunger Wall name). The king wanted a defensive wall built, and the people needed feeding. The king asked the people to build the wall, and in returen they were paid in kind with food. The wall itself - or the part that remains, is on the hill at Petrin. Take the funicular up the hill (or walk) and the wall is to the south of the station at the top, throught the rose gardens. Not a massively interesting attraction - it is just a wall. But take the time to learn about its history, and its worth visiting to see where and understand why - and why the statuers are NOT part of it!

    A picturesque corner with tiny winding streets,and small residential houses, small hotels and little cafe is located out of the beaten track close to the Prague castle. The famous Danish astronomer and mathematician Tycho Brahe lived in the house No. 76/1 in 1600. At the end you can find a house with a thatched roof, the only surviving timbered building in Prague, now a hotel. Now thanks to lack of tourists lost and deserted world.

    If you are already visiting the Prague castle, this little lane of tiny houses should not be missed. Normally you would need to buy a ticket, but the lane is free if you go after 5pm. There will be a lot less crowds during that time too, because it really is a small area. The houses themselves are tiny, and they have been turned into souvenir shops. The Franz Kafka house is number 22.
