Old Town City Hall

Prague Old Town Hall Tower (www.free-city-guides.com)

This is now the home of the Prague Tourist Information Centre and is full of useful information.  There’s a twist though, as the tower here is also a tourist attraction.  It was originally built in 1338 and you can now climb right to the top.  There is an elevator if you don’t fancy the stairs and the view of the Old Town Square from the top is fantastic.    This is an extract from our free Prague City Guide.
