Old Town Square, in Czech known as Staroměstské náměstí, is the central square of the historic part of Prague. The square is one of the greatest tourist attractions of the Czech capital, along with Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. It is almost impossible to miss it if you’re coming to Prague as a tourist. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. I In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.
The oldest part of the complex consists of a beautiful Gothic tower with a bay chapel and a unique astronomical clock - known as the Astronomical Clock - where every hour between 9 am and 11 pm, the twelve apostles appear.
