The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

I would plan my trip on being there when the clock hit 12. As there are so many people near the clock you may not want to stay long. But well worth the trip.

A wonderful place, full of history. The building with the clock was covered in scaffold but the clock was still on display!

The clock is what it is - it's the sort of thing you have to go see but it's not mind-blowing! The surrounding area is stunning though and worth a nosy round. I believe you can go up into the clock but we didn't so...More

August 2017 there was building work on the tower so you could not go up it. The clock is exposed however and is relatively amusing when it rings although slightly underwhelming for the huge crowd that gathers every hour. The clock is definitely more interesting...More

On the third try we finally got on the front row to watch the astronomical clock chime. Got to see those 12 disciples move around. Be sure and get there a few minutes before the top of the hour so you can find a place...More

We rented and apt here and absolutely loved it. Didn't mind the noise of crowds all day long. People gather every hour for the astronomical clock . Lots of entertainment from musicians and others. It's a lovely place to hang out. Must, while in Prague

One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

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
