Owner description: The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.

You'll get lost but that is part of the fun wandering around Old Town. The square has an amazing astronomical clock, the saints parading at each hour are hard to see

The best part of prague in my opinion. Lots of shops but please beware do not change any money from anyone that approaches you as they give you russian money. I am afraid it happened to us.

Old cobble streets and cafe style restaurants. The old town has a lot of charm to it. Make sure you see the Astro clock when it plays music every hour
