Old Town Square, historical square on the Old Town square right in the center of Prague.

Thus, the square has become an oasis for travelers from the narrow streets of Prague.
In addition to the churches, other great attractions of the square are the Astronomical Clock, called Orloj, the statue of Jan Hus and the Tower of the Old City, which allows a panoramic view of the whole square.
ORLOJ
The Orloj is a medieval astronomical clock. It is composed of three main components: the astronomical display, representing the position of the Sun and the Moon in the sky, besides showing several celestial details; the "Walk of the Apostles", a mechanical show represented at every hour exchange with the figures of the apostles and other sculptures with movement; and a calendar display with medallions representing the months (or zodiacs, as they appear in some texts).

    Route volgt niet excact het stratenplan, soms wa lastig om te bepalen welke straat je op een rotonde of kruispunt moet aanhouden.
