The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.

Old Town Square is where it's at! Lots of activities and plenty of restaurants --- all very good. Winding side streets have lots of shops and pubs to sample the extraordinary Czech beer. I enjoyed the clock chiming on the hour with the doors opening...More

Many, many restaurants and shops in Old Prague. So quaint with cobblestone streets, although sturdy walking shoes are a must to navigate these streets. It's a "must see".

This is a lively spot with locals and tourists. It is a nice area to sit for a few and take it all in. Very close to Charles Bridge and the Castle District.

The atmosphere is wonderful, with a medieval feel to it. Buildings are well restored. The square is very busy and according to my taste a bit too much... come early (or late) and you can have the square more to yourself!

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
