Absolutely fantastic place to visit. The buildings and architecture look like a film set in the old square. I have never considered Prague before and was here to have eye lens surgery. I am overwhelmed by the whole City. It is a shoppers paradise. I will definitely return.

Old Town Square is great! Loads of places to eat/drink and shop. If you go down the side streets there's even more places hidden. Must go if you're visiting Prague!

Buildings are stunning, atmosphere is fantastic. I can only speak for Christmastime but I'm sure it's just as good a spot all year round.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
