Old Town Square

Address: Staroměstské nám., Staré Město, Pargue, the Czech Republic

Old Town Square, near Charles Bridge, is easily accessible on foot. There are many unique boutiques and al fresco dining spots along the way. If you have time, simply enjoy a cup of coffee in the middle of your journey. The square consists of some of the famous attractions in Prague, including the Church of Our Lady before Týn, Old Town Hall, Prague Astronomical Clock (Prague Orloj) and St. Nicholas Church. It is a spot worth immersing yourself in during your visit.

The Prague Astronomical Clock in the square is the most important medieval striking clock in Prague. The oldest part of the Orloj dates back to 1410. The clock is still a popular spot, fully packed with travellers from around the world, day and night. Tourists, with their heads raised, carefully study the structure of the clock as it is exquisitely crafted.

The real part of the astronomical clock is located in the lower half of the tower. This can be further divided into two dials. The upper dial shows the time while the lower one shows the month. The little window at the top features the statues of the Twelve Apostles. The statues “take a walk” and introduce themselves one by one when the clock strikes. The procession eventually ends with a rooster’s crow.
