An 11th-century marketplace, Old Town Square is today one of the city's most animated areas, featuring charming café terraces, magnificent Gothic churches, and ornate palaces.
It is located between two of Prague's other major monuments, the Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square. Pause for a moment by the central sculpture of Jan Hus, a religious reformer who was burned at the stake. Note the small white crosses inscribed on the cobblestones, which memorialise the 27 leaders of the rebellion against the Habsburgs who were beheaded here on 12 June 1621.
Finally, don't miss the moment when the famous astronomical clock, built in 1410, strikes the hour!
