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.

A lovely old European place...just too many tourists. And it seems like the locals have caught on to all the tourist 'traps'.

With its beautiful architecture and splendid building facades, it’s worth the visit. Plan your visit to be there in time to see the show at the astronomical clock. Don’t forget to be aware at the pickpockets.

Every hour watch the saints peek from the clock tower, wonder at the beauty of St. Nicholas Church, enjoy the mimes, listen to the music, eat from a street vendor, have a drink at a cafe, then meander down the lanes leading from the Square for more surprises.

Take your time and enjoy the everywhere present art nouveau , not only de places listed as "must". Avoid the locals offering you "the best rate in tonwn", changing money isn't a fair business in Prague streets and you could get uselees exotic banknotes
