We enjoyed the Old Town Square. We went in the evening when there were a lot of performers that were very entertaining (they perform informally for money). Great places to eat all around the square.

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

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and

Yes, you will be able to visit other towns by trains & buses. You must see Cesky Krumlov, a beautiful medieval town. It's about 2 & a half hours away.
