In the centre of the Old Town is the astronomical clock, which chimes every hour on the hour and all the tourists gather to look up to the tower. On the tower are the apostles, which move around to the chimes of the bells; although not the highlight of my holiday, this was definitely worth a visit. We also took a trip up the tour and the views from the top were amazing -- you could see right over to Charles Bridge and up to the castle.
All around the old town square, there are cafes and restaurants where you can sit outside and watch the world go by; beware because the drinks and food are more expensive than in other areas of Prague.
In December in the old town square, all the Christmas markets are set up and you can wander round for hours looking at all the handmade puppets and the varieties of food on offer.

On one end of the Square is Our Lady before Tyn Church with its Gothic steeples, dating from 1365. Next to it is Kinsky Palace. Also in the Square is the white Church of St. Nicholas, once Russian Orthodox, now Protestant.
