The Basics

The best way to explore Old Town Square is on foot—join the crowds wandering and sipping coffee in streetside cafés, admire the intricate architecture, or join a group walking tour of the city to benefit from the experience of an expert guide. Most Prague tours pass through the square on the way to nearby attractions such as Wenceslas Square, the Charles Bridge, or the Jewish Quarter. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour, or combine an Old Town walking tour with a visit to Prague Castle, a sightseeing cruise along the Vltava River, or a traditional Czech lunch.

Prague Ghosts and Legends of Old Town Walking Tour
Evzenie was an excellent guide. She told her stories with great detail and animation. We enjoyed the stories we heard and I loved the costuming. The added flair was great for the experience, especially the spooky glow of the lantern. I would recommend this tour for my friends and clients if they, too, are fascinated by the paranormal and folklore legends.

Prague Ghosts and Legends of Old Town Walking Tour
My guide was David and he was so creative, extremely hilarious, funny and shared the info in an exciting way.. the tour wasn’t only about ghosts, as there was an element of the dark history in an attractive way they made me want to read more.. the guide also pointed places to visit .. He made sure to involve the whole group so no one felt left out .. the most important his English is perfect as it is his mother language so I did not find it difficult to understand him.

When to Get There

Most tour guides time their arrival at Old Town Square to see the astronomical clock display, which occurs at the turn of every hour, but you can admire the square’s grand architecture anytime. It can get extremely busy during the day, especially during the peak summer months, so opt for an early morning visit to avoid crowds. Visit the square after dark to see the buildings dramatically illuminated, or stop by during the festive holiday season, when the square hosts the city’s main Christmas market.
