The Old Town Square (or Old Town Square) is a 9,000 m² square in Stare Mesto (Prague's Old Town). Already back in the 11th century, the square was used as a trading hub and was known throughout much of Europe. Today, the square also hosts regular markets and is always bustling with restaurants, cafes, shops and bars everywhere. One of the square's most remarkable facets is the beautiful Gothic Týn Church and the large astronomical clock from 1410.
The clock is particularly interesting when the bell strikes full, as it is at this time that a small hole in the clock is opened and Jesus Christ comes out before his disciples. Next to it, death rings with a bell.
