Old Town Square, Prague

4.8
The heart of old Prague, Old Town Square is one of Europe's largest public spaces. The site of the city's main marketplace for nearly a thousand years, the old square features a Gothic cathedral and a Baroque church, as well as a 600-year-old astronomical clock, one of the world's oldest. Tourists and buskers pack around the square's central statue of religious reformer Jan Hus, creating a modern urban atmosphere in the middle of Prague's oldest quarter. The square also includes a memorial to the 27 Protestant leaders beheaded here in 1620. Take a guided tour of the square's landmark churches, and see an ingenious piece of equipment come to life by standing in front of the astronomical clock right on the hour. A visit to Old Town Square represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Prague online vacation maker to plot your vacation.
