The Prague Old Town Square, as the name suggests, is in the Old Town section of Prague, Czech Republic. It is located on the other side of the Charles Bridge from the Prague Castle.
The most prominent feature of the square is the imposing yet beautiful Gothic Church of Mother of God before Týn. This church was completed in the 1400’s. Prague has many of these old sites as it is was not devastated by World War II to the extent that many cities in Europe were. This church as seen in our original photo is located behind some buildings but its 80 meter high towers overshadow all.
Other features of the square are the astronomical clock which is part of the Old Town Hall. Many tourist wait hours to watch the mechanical motions. Our hotel was located very close to this square and we were able to see the clock motions several times.
In the photo you can see the Salvador Dali and Alfonse Mucha exhibitions. These are also worthwhile to visit if your schedule allows.
