Prague Old Town Square (Staromestské Námestí) Tours and Activities

star-4.5
34 Reviews
Prague Old Town Square (Staromestské Námestí)
Prague’s Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is the historic heart and navigational center of the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town. A feast of architectural wonders, the medieval square is ringed with grandiose Romanesque, baroque, and Gothic style buildings, including some of Prague’s most photographed monuments.

The Basics
The best way to explore Old Town Square is on foot—join the crowds wandering and sipping coffee in streetside cafés, admire the intricate architecture, or join a group walking tour of the city to benefit from the experience of an expert guide. Most Prague tours pass through the square on the way to nearby attractions such as Wenceslas Square, the Charles Bridge, or the Jewish Quarter. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour, or combine an Old Town walking tour with a visit to Prague Castle, a sightseeing cruise along the Vltava River, or a traditional Czech lunch. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are available in the Old Town area.
  • Parking is scarce in Old Town and many streets are one-way or pedestrian-only, so it’s best to walk or use public transport.
  • Many of the attractions around Old Town Square are wheelchair accessible, but its best to check in advance. 

How to Get There
Prague Old Town Square is located at the center of Old Town on the east bank of the Vltava River. It can be reached on foot from Lesser Town and New Town. The nearest tram stop is Staromestska, and the Staromestska, Namesti Republiky, and Mustek metro stations are all a short walk away.

When to Get There
Most tour guides time their arrival at Old Town Square to see the astronomical clock display, which occurs at the turn of every hour, but you can admire the square’s grand architecture anytime. It can get extremely busy during the day, especially during the peak summer months, so opt for an early morning visit to avoid crowds. Visit the square after dark to see the buildings dramatically illuminated, or stop by during the festive holiday season, when the square hosts the city’s main Christmas market. 

Landmarks of Prague’s Old Town Square
Strolling around Old Town Square makes for an impressive walking tour, with magnificent buildings on every corner. Notable monuments include the Old Town Hall, famous for its Gothic facade and intricate astronomical clock; the Tyn Cathedral; the baroque Church of St. Nicholas; the Rococo Kinský Palace; and the Jan Hus statue.
