The Old Town Square in Prague is the main highlight of the city and the biggest tourist attraction. This is the center, the gathering point, and the hot spot for tourist to have fun and take in a lot of history. This Square is the oldest and most significant square in the historical center of Prague.
This large cobblestone square is surrounded by pastel colored Baroque/Renaissance/Rococo and Art Nouveau building housing art galleries, hotels and restaurants. The main attraction of the square is the stunningly Gothic Tyn Church, the gorgeously baroque St. Nicholas Church, the famous Astronomical Clock, the Old Town Hall Tower and the legendary Jan Hus Monument that sits in the center of it all. Prague is very unique as it holds many different centuries of architecture and they are often connected to one another making a dramatic contrast.
This square is used for concerts, markets, festival and more. I will go through each of the squares attractions and history beginning with the square itself.
