The heart of old Prague, StaromEstske namEsti 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.

Unlike the crowds of the Charles Bridge, the crowds are not inconvenient in this square because everything circulates very fast in the other neighborhoods. Astronomical clock to see, of course, and not pay attention to the silly forest of smartphones that rises when the little characters scroll.
Wonderful views, rather busy and a lot of vendors on the bridge. It makes for a nice walk to get to the other side. Great lights at night more »
