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.

With so much to see and so many shops and restaurants it is difficult to find anything that doesn't please the most discerning traveller. We did find it strange that, the country being an atheist majority, that there were a lot of churches.

You should definitely see it as this is the heart of the city. However, do not stay in hotels, apartments located on the Old Town Square - it can be very loud and noisy at nights. Also, I do not recommend dining at the Old...More

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

There is typically not a fee, as they are street markets -- if they are like those in Austria and Germany, the only outlay is when you buy a beverage and need to pay a refundable deposit of 2-3€ on the mug. Bon Voyage!
