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.

We spent 1/2 day wandering the many streets, visiting churches and seeing synagogues. Tons of shops and places to eat but best suggestion is to find an outdoor cafe, order a cappuccino and people watch!

Obviously crowded in high season, but a must do. Plenty places around to eat and drink and soak up the atmosphere. A wee bit more expensive, but won’t break the bank.

Obviously at night when lit up does look attractive but at the end of the day it’s a square and you can only stay there for so long! Petrin tower miles better!

Though much renovated but the place still has got the charm of old Prague. Made me felt like sitting in 500 years ago in an old City in Europe. Love the atmosphere, love the vibrancy of 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
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

The fabulous St. Thomas Church (Josefska 28/8) definitely has services on Saturdays. Normally at 12:15 and 18:00 in English. Check their website for more details on which chapel, etc.
