It's where the clock is so expect tons of people at each round hour. Don't be tempted by the "street food there" , it's much more expensive then it sounds (prices are per 100 gram) and it's not good. Other then that worth a visit.

Yes, it's a big square with lots of interesting buildings and plenty of cafes and restaurants. don't miss the Astronomical Clock, though - performances every hour on the hour if you can get near enough to see.

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

We walked with my older mother without any problem. I suggest you to walk easy and enjoy the view. Use the hotel's map or city may to navigate ( so that you would not need to see your smartphone all the time).
