Old Town Square is the center of Prague. In the middle of it all, Old Town Hall Tower (which also houses the famous Astronomical Clock) provides the best, 360-degree views of the city.
The tower was built in 1338. For a fee, visitors can climb or take an elevator to the top of the nearly 230-foot tower for views of Prague Castle, Strahov Monastery, Tyn Cathedral, the National Gallery Museum, church towers, the winding cobblestone streets of the old town, and a sea of red-roofed buildings. Wonderful views abound miles into the surrounding areas and provide a birds-eye view of the crowds and historic streets below.
