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.

This is a must for all Prague travelers. Filled with tourists, lovely restaurants and atmosphere. Would visit again during evening just to see the square lit.

Really impressive architecture, ideal place to meet, roads lead off to a lot of attractions, some of the restaurants and cafes prices are a bit steep but your going to pay more in any major tourist area. The Mucha exhibition is well worth a look.

First night in Prague and went to the old town square and I was a sight you can only believe by standing in the centre of it and turn around and around historical buildings everywhere you look. Hidden gems of shops down all little pathways...More

Staroměstské náměstí, old town square, is a famous and no. 1 attraction in Prague. It links famous shopping streets, such as parsiska (Paris) where you can find all luxurious brands and ends with Jewish quartet. Also links Celetná and Karlova streets, were all souvenirs shops...More

The square is lit up at night and filled with people until late in the evening. Plenty of shopping and restaurants - had dinner at 2 different Italian places that were great. Will go during the day tomorrow and update my review.

This is a busy plaza full of tourists and their guides, and pickpockets. The ancient town clock tower was not what was described - just some statues rotating on two pedestals like a cuckoo clock. Even the peeling bells were sad.

The old town square is beautiful, very busy with tourists but that doesn't detract from it. If you are looking to see the clock get there either very early in the morning or very late!

Just walk around the square and you'll have seen it all. Don't go for coffee or bier or to eat restaurants in the square. Overpriced and food is just averaged.

Lovely old square with some great galleries. You can sit and soak up the city here. Very dramatic large cast iron statue in the centre

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!
