Prague, a magical city that charms all those who develop a passion for it. A city which is like an open book that still offers so much to read, to dream about and to understand.

The best thing is to wander around and to observe everything, all the way up to the tops of the houses and towers, absorbing the whole picture, the crowding of the towers and the pointed spires.

Location

OLD TOWN The Old Town was first mentioned in 1091 and gained the privileges of a town in the 13th century. The heart of the Old Town has always been the Old Town Square, dominated the Church of Our Lady of Tyn and the Town Hall. The Old Town Square is surrounded by buildings with fantastic Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture, including the beautiful Gothic Church Tyn. At the north part of the square you find the Hus Memorial in honour of 15th-century Jan Hus, the religious reformer who founded the Hussite sect. Beyond the square, you'll find a labyrinth of narrow streets and squares with small Gothic and Romanesque churches spread around the entire Old Town.

Old Town Square is Prague\'s heart since the 10th century and its main market place until the beginning of the 20th century; the spacious Old Town Square has been the scene of the most important events in the history of Prague, may they be great or tragic. The Old Town Square is surrounded by beautiful pastel-coloured buildings in Romanesque and Gothic style with fascinating decorations. Today, the Old Town Square offers visitors the spectacular view of the Astronomical Clock, the churches of St Nicholas and Our Lady before Tyn, Jan Hus' statue; also a large selection of restaurants, cafés, shops and galleries.

The Church of Our Lady before Tyn was the main Hussite church in Prague and it dominates the Old Town Square with its impressive spires. A beautiful entrance portal decorated with scenes of Christ\'s passion and a huge Rococo altar on the northern wall are some of its most interesting features. The interior was reconstructed in the Baroque style in late 17 century.

The Old Town Hall was established in the 14th century as a symbol of autonomy, after the agreement of King John of Luxemburg to set up a town council. Several old houses were incorporated over the centuries as the Old Town Hall expanded. A Gothic chapel and a neo-Gothic north wing were destroyed by the Nazis in the spring of 1945, but now the chapel has been reconstructed. The most famous part of the tower is the Town Hall Clock, dating from the 15th century. It consists of three parts – the procession of Apostles, the astronomical clock and the calendar, and the hourly procession of the 12 Apostles is its most spectacular feature.
