Photo | Prague’s Old Town Square at Night

Prague, Czech Republic

The magical lights of Prague’s Old Town Square seem to amplify the enchanting conversation between the Clock Tower and Tyn Church at night.

Located between Wenceslas Square and the Charles Bridge, Prague’s Old Town Square is often bursting at the seams with tourists in the summer. Featuring various architectural styles including the gothic Týn Church and baroque St. Nicholas Church, the square is an oasis for travelers wearied by Prague’s narrow streets. Among many churches, tourists may find the Astronomical Clock on this square, while the tower at the Old Town Hall offers a panoramic view of Old Town shop.

The square’s center is home to a statue of religious reformer Jan Hus, who for his beliefs was burned at the stake in Constance. The statue known as the Jan Hus Memorial was erected on July 6, 1915 to mark the 500th anniversary of his death.
