One of the most beautiful town squares in the world. There are always street performers, and of course the astronomical clock cannot be missed (although right now, April 2018, it is being restored and there is a video wall replacing the clock momentarily). The food vendors are great and the restaurants that ring the square offer outdoor seating so you can people-watch while you eat. Not to be missed while in Prague.

Always a fun vibrant place to visit, lots of things to see, especially on a Saturday; street performers, singers, people in fun costumes. However a word of notice about the currency exchange places in this area, well all of Prague really but being the centre of the city you'd expect some regulation, well regulation does not exist it seems. I exchanged £60 into Czech Korona, at an exchange rate of £1 = 29.00CK. I was 'offered' 800CK, and offered is the operative word here, the real amount should be around 1700CK, after questioning this offer I was shown another calculator this time with 1200CK... So overall I recommend you use your bank card as exchanging money in Prague is a nightmare. Back to the square, it's very clean and tidy with many nice buildings, the famous clock was being repaired during my visit but it didn't take away from the wonderful atmosphere and nature of the entire area, it's also a brilliant meeting place and feels very safe and family friendly even at night.

Beautiful! A must stop when in Prague. Sit in the square right on the ground or opt for one of the many delicious restaurants for a bite or drink and enjoy the people watching. All of the buildings are stunning and have a unique history. Many other historic landmarks in the immediate vicinity including the astronomical clock in only a few steps.

Prague is a beautiful city to walk around. You can literally explore the entire city on foot. The buildings are exquisite. Visit the market in the main square for some dainty souvenirs and delicious food (the tredelnik is a must-try). Visit the wax museum too. Really nice. There's also the museum of torture if you're interested in that.

The beating heart of Prague tourism and liveliness. A must-see spectacle, with tons of activity and food. There are more street performers here than anyplace else I've ever been, and most of them are actually really good. This area also contains a lot of food stalls with Czech traditional food which is super reasonably priced and worth a few tries. Also tons of cafes and bars in the square and very nearby; you're going to eat well here. Be careful to watch your things - this is a high-traffic tourist magnet, so an unwary/unguarded bag may be lifted quickly. We never had or saw any problems, just a precaution.

This is a place you shouldn't miss when in Prague, together with Charles Bridge (it's nearby each other). Several landmarks are surrounding this square, where musicians and street performers add the local taste. There are surely a lot of interesting spots to take picture or just to enjoy, for your amusement. You can also pick local souvenirs offered by small merchants around, but beware of your safety because many people have reported of being pickpocketed around here. Tip: put your money in money-belt or distribute the banknotes to several places of your belongings, don't wear tourist-specific outfits, and act calmly.

Wow ! Great place to be in. You can spend hours and hours just walking around, sitting around, watching people, activities, street performers. Historic buildings, cafes, pizzeria, horse carriage, vintage cars... it's got something for everyone !! Go out there and have fun ! Just avoid exchanging currency here ;-) You'll end up getting a bad deal. Rest everything is super cool !!
