If Wenceslas Square in the New Town is a point of culmination in recent national history, then the walls of the Old Town Square mirror the events of many centuries past that have left their mark in eminent buildings. The square is actually neither square nor rectangular, in fact, the ground plan is extremely irregular. The Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles combine to form a unique composition, rightly perceived as the centre of the historical city of Prague. As well as important monument, palaces, and churches there are proud townhouses whose history dates back to medieval times.
The famous monuments on the Old Town Square are Old Town City Hall with the Astronomical Clock, House “At the Stone Bell”, Kinsky Palace, The Church of St Nicholas in the Old Town and Tyn Church (Church of Our Lady before Tyn).
