I think one of the first things I would recommend someone to do on their visit to Prague is go to the Old Town Square and climb the Town Hall Clock Tower to get oriented.
This view shows the prominent place the Jan Hus Monument occupies in the Square.

Here is another image of the Old Town Square.
It is a great place to simply sit and watch people and listen to all the different languages being spoken.

There are a lot of horse-drawn carriages if you want to take a ride around the Old Town as well.

This is the heart of the old town, Staromestske namesti. The bronze statue in the middle of the square is of Jan Hus. The square is dominated by the Old Town Hall on one side and the spires of Tyn Church on the other.

If in Prague you have to go to the Old Town Square. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen, its like stepping back in time. Every building seems to have maintained its charm and all look just the same as they would have in days gone by.
Unsurpassed Man-made beauty.

Old Town, Prague, CZ

Despite a number of foreign invaders, Prague's Old Town Square has remained virtually untouched since the 10th century. Today's marauders consist largely of tourists who congregate to eat alfresco while admiring a hodgepodge of architecture — including the Rococo Kinsky Palace, the Gothic Tyn Cathedral and the Baroque St. Nicholas Church, to name a few.

An ever-changing cast of musicians, protesters, dance troupes, punks and vendors make the square as colorful as the buildings that surround it ... :)

Old Town Square at Night

Flood lights brighen the stately buildings looming over the cobbled and mosaiced streets. Prague is mostly know for the Gothic spires of its older architecture, but there are a variety of styles in the square. The holidays are a beautiful time to visit -- this blue-light christmas tree held court in the middle of the square.

One of Europas famous squares

There is much to see and do at this big square; The astronomical clock, two big cathedrals, the statue, several beautiful coloured houses, a little souvenir market and, of course; the people. There are almost always musicians playing at the square; even in the winter.

Old Town Square (Staromestské Námestí)

The most pictoresque remains of Prague's history are very well preserved around the Old Town Square. Some of the most prominent buildings around the square are the Old Town Hall, the Týn Church, the Kinsky Palace and the St. Nicholas Church.

Kinský Palace

In 1948, the balcony of this beautiful palace was used by Klement Gottwald, the communist leader, to address to the members of his party. A central event that concluded to his "coup d'etat".
Today the Natonal Gallery uses this Palace for art exhibitions.

The Heart of Prague (Staromestske namestie)

This colorful and lively square is the core of Old Prague in the Stare Mesto quarter. It became the heart of the city when the Town Hall was built here in the 13th century.

This is the main spot for touristsso its full of restaurants, cafes and too many souvenir shops. The Jan Hus Memorial, the Tyn Churck and the Town Hall with its Astronomical Clock are the main sights here.

Old Town Square

Old Town Square in Prague is a must see place.
It's a large cobbled square (obviously), surrounded by beautiful buildings - the architecture is worth a trip to Prague alone....
If you fancy a drink while you're there, pop into the George and the Dragon pub and relax!
