Staré Město (Old Town)

Old Town is usually the first stop for any visitor. Old Town Square, its gorgeous houses, and the astronomical clock are blockbuster attractions. On the other hand, the north end of Wenceslas Square—its base, the opposite end from the statue and the museum—is also a good place to begin a tour of Old Town. This "T" intersection marks the border between the old and new worlds in Prague. A quick glance around shows the often jarring juxtaposition: centuries-old buildings sit side by side with modern retail names like Benetton and Starbucks.
