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.

  • A beautiful place located in the centre of Prague. There are many touristic places near to the centre like astronomical clock, market, tower and church. It has great vibe. Even Charles bridge is walking distance from this place. It is a must visit place if you are visiting Prague. There is a tower which provides beautiful view of the city.
  • This square is absolutely gorgeous and i suggest to every tourist to visit it at least once during their stay in Prague. It's literally surrounded by amazing places to visit, great restaurants and always fully packed with tourists. Also, it's possible to enjoy Czech street food here. Nearby there's the Basilica of saint Nicholas, the church of Lyn and the famous clock of Prague.
