“Too many structures”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Prague felt a little too crowded with buildings and structures. The Old town square reminded me a little of the town square of Bruges. It's nice, but nothing great compared to the town squares at some of the other European cities.

“Fairy tales enchanting emotion”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Never been to Prague? Ok, wait for sunset to get to staromestske namesti, also called Old Town Square or Clock Square...you'll be enchanted by the colors of the gold over the towers of Tin Cathedral, together with the magic that stay inside of the oldest mechanical clock in the globe. You'll feel to live inside a medioeval fairy tale...

“Fabulous atmosphere, great people watching!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Best early evening when the street entertainers are taking it in turns to please the passing crowds. Lovely hotdog and ham hock stalls, plus you can get a beer and watch the world go by. My favourite part of Prague by far. The clock tower is a crowd pleaser on the hour, every hour too.

“What could be better than...”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Shopping and outdoor cafe dining, while being seranaded to music from various locals (from bagpipes to string quartets). You will also see the famous Anatomical Clock that still functions and keeps excellent time in spite of its age -- be there on the hour for a real treat.
