This is the start of my favorite part of Prague. Every other part of Prague fades in my memory, but not Old Town. And Old Town Square is the culmination of it all. It's just mesmerizing to see all those historical buildings 360 degress around me. My favorites are the Old Town Hall with the Orloj and the Tyn Church. I love the juxtaposition of the Gothic church with the more Renaissance building in front. And if you ever needed an idea of why Prague is called the "City of a Hundred Spires", that church will tell you why. And of course, you have to stay in that square long enough to see the Orloj go off on the hour. Get there early to get a good spot.
