The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

Great scenery. Many options for food. Very crowded. A lot of entertaining street performers. A warning, the street food vendors have delicious food but take the uninformed tourists for a ride! The food is sold by the pound, but if you don’t specify, they load...More

A must for a visit, and impossible to pass by as most streets lead to this square. Clock was interesting, but even in the relatively quiet month of November, it was very busy spoiling the atmosphere. I’d imagine it would look wonderful when Christmas market...More

Overlooking the Square - the hike to the top of the tower is well worth the effort (and not too taxing!). Excellent views and you get a great perspective of the Square below.

We enjoyed seeing the European architecture and special historic clock as part of a walking tour. Make sure you're there on the hour to hear and see it perform.

In order to fully appreciate the area a guide is recommended... human or paper. At night street performers ply their trade and there are plenty of eateries with the usual levy for a tourist area. The Astronomical clock needs a bit of explaining and while...More

Loved hearing the history behind the clock and then watching the little doors open at 10 am for the display of the disciples. It passes quickly so have the camera ready! Make sure someone explains how the clock operates, it’s fascinating to realize it’s from...More

It may be busy most of the year; it may be full of tourist groups and entertainers and it may be lined with over-priced cafes but the old town hall and the clock is central to Prague. You must see. Go to be there on...More

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
