One of my favourite places in Prague. Beautiful buildings, a lively food and souvenir market and the famous astrological clock. Great place to chill with a beer. Czech beer is second none by the way.

We found a great Easter market with food, souvenirs and petting area with goats , sheep and donkeys etc... The local decorations for Easter make it really special and so many bars and restaurants close by, not to be missed by tourist visitors anytime of the year.

Easily walk-able despite the crowds. There's booths of locals selling warm drinks, local snacks, or playing music. Warm atmosphere.

Stunning as in pictures! Go there early in the morning so you can enjoy it. If you can go there around 9 to walk around without too many people.

The centre of a great city. Easter market was still going and good to see a country holding up its religious values without submitting to political correctness. Astronomical Clock is about to undergo a refurb so we timed it right (no pun intended). Slightly spoilt by ignorant tourists who struggle to see you or purposefully walk into you believing you...

The place is interesting and fascinating. Problem is it attracts too many flipping tourists like me and then you can't move. Keep looking up because there are fascinating buildings

Love the Old Town of Prague for its liveliness and good atmosphere. There's lots of stuff to see, such as open air markets, good restaurants, but mainly just loads of bars!

Neighbourhood Profile
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 modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
