Old Town Square, Prague
Are you planning to visit Old Town Square in Prague? See our information below!
Old Town Square (Staroměstské Náměstí) is the centre of historic Prague and one of the best-preserved city squares in Europe. Surrounding the square are all kinds of beautiful historical sights such as the Council House, the 14th-century Týn Church and the extraordinary astronomical clock. This old town square was built some 700 years ago and it, along with the rest of Prague’s historic centre, has long been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Today, you can still find beautiful historical architecture and the square is full of cosy terraces. Regular events are held here, such as a big Christmas market in December. Along the square you will also find quite a few tents selling Trdelnik, a traditional sweet treat. Dough is wrapped around a stick and baked over the fire. Then sugar or cinnamon is sprinkled on top, but there are also Trdelnik filled with Nutella. You must try one!
Prague’s Old Town Square is a public square, which can be visited 24 hours every day.
