A Guide to Prague’s Historical Quarters: Old Town

The heart of any European city is always the historic old town, and Staré Město is definitely that. Likely due to the fact that it has one of Europe’s most specular town squares (called Staroměstské náměstí / Old Town Square), covering an area of over 9,000 square meters, from which the whole city can be explored from. It dates back to the 9th century where merchants from all over the world would meet here as the central crossroads point for trade routes. Today, it is bustling with activity and the constant crowds – morning, noon and night – are all part of the experience.
