Old Town Square

The Old Town marketplace with its pastel-coloured baroque houses and cathedral is one of Europe’s most beautiful squares. Its centrepiece is a large statue of a prominent religious leader from the 1400s, Jan Hus. Multiple bars and cafes adorn the square.

The Czech capital is small and compact, with hospody (beer-houses) offering the world’s best beers stationed on every street corner. The most important areas are the central districts of the city: Staré Město (Old Town), Josefov, Nové Město (New Town), and Malá Strana (Lesser Town). These are best explored on foot.
