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.

  • One of my favorite places in Prague! The city is small itself so this area is usually walkable from most places and is at a great location with lots of great bars and restaurants nearby. I highly recommend visiting at night during holidays especially around Christmas when the Christmas market is open and the Christmas decorations are up. Unfortunately when we visited the Christmas market was closed due to give but the Christmas tree was still kept around.
  • On the square there are several fast food stalls. One of them sells pork ham made with wood, at a super cheap price and a very abundant quantity. The people who serve are super friendly and the service is very fast with a weight meal and take away. Highly recommended for lunches
