With its ancient buildings and magnificent churches, the Old Town is one of the most beautiful historical places in Europe. The Old Town Square dates from the 12th century and started life as the central marketplace for Prague.

At the center of the Old Town Square is the Jan Hus statue, erected on the 6th July 1915 to mark the 500th anniversary of the reformer’s death. The groundswell of support for his beliefs during the 14th and 15th centuries led to the Hussite wars.
