The Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is one of two main squares in Prague.

The Old Town Square's most notable sights are the Old Town Hall Tower & Astronomical Clock, the Church of Our Lady before Tyn and St. Nicholas Church.

The Old Town Hall estabished 1338 as the seat of the Old Town authorites. The oldest gothic part of the complex which includes a tower and an oriel chapel is richly decorated with coats of arms. It was built in the later half of the 14th century.

In the top pert of the Astronomical Clock (early 15th ctntury) the 12 apostles appear every hour between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. The eastern pseudo-gothic wing of the Town Hall was destroed on May 8 , 1945 and has not been rebuilt yet.
