“Just a city square, which is even not the interesting one”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

There is an interesting baroque church, New Town’s Town Hall, where the famous first defenestration took place, an important mass transportation node and a hospital. But that’s all worth of visiting and in fact in all cases you do not need to get into the park itself. In fact strolling in the park is not interesting and might not be recommended as it is not very safe indeed. One of the busiest roads in the city makes it here even worse to stay. While in Prague, you will definitely come across this square, which is one of the largest in the world, but if you would have had no time to walk around, do not regret.

“Relaxing area”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Not a great deal happening here but it's nice to stop and sit on a bench in the square for a while on a nice day as it's quite a relaxing area.

It's the charming square with all the public transport you need in Karlovo Namesti. it's one of the widest square in Prague.

“Nothing extra interesting”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I would not send any tourist there, yes there are some historical buildings, but Prague is full of them. Furthermore the park there is not the nicest and safest.
