Historical buildings and the Tyn church on the Old Town Square, Prague

The Old Town Square is one of the most interesting places of Prague. Not only at the corner of the square you have the astronomical clock but every single house is a monument on itself. All facades are different, they contain statues, arches, paintings, towers, different colour displays, tell stories, … You have to be there to appreciate the beauty of this great square in the old town of Prague. It is always very crowded, all tourist want to be here and see the powerful towers of the Tyn church. As a tourist you have the opportunity to visit Prague in horse and carriage. This is one of the departure points.

De Old Town Square (oude stadsplein) is één van de meest interessante plaatsen in Praag. Niet alleen omwille van de astronomische klok die op de hoek van het plein staat maar elk huis en gebouw is een kunstwerk op zichzelf. Alle gevels zijn verschillend en bevatten standbeelden, sierbogen, schilderwerken, torentjes, kleuren, vertellen een verhaal… Je moet dit gewoon ter plaatse gezien hebben om de echte schoonheid van dit plein in de oude stad van Praag te appreciëren. Het is er steeds druk, alle toeristen willen de machtige torens van de Tyn kerk zien. Indien je als toerist de stad wil bezoeken met paard en koets is dit een vertrekpunt..

  11. We have been there and enjoyed too. It is beautiful. But I think there were too many tourists there, people of Prague who did not worked in old town was not present (too expensively)and in the end - I prefer towns a little more shabby, like Rome. But - I will never forget! Have you been to Krakow?
