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. A visit to Staromestske namesti represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Prague online vacation maker to plot your vacation.

Definitely a must-see place in Prague, the very centre, at least on one bank of the river. Place where the history made its marks, things have been happening, amazing atmosphere. Some nice galleries, the clock on the Old Town Hall building, its tower to climb up...
Always delightful to walk through the old town square... architecture, monuments and lots of history in this compact area. Have an early morning walk before the city wakes up and you'll have an unforgettable experience...
