Old Town, Prague

Mentioned in 1091, Prague Old Town is the oldest of the towns of the Czech capital, gaining the privileges of a town in the 13th century. Its name dates back to the 14th century when the New Town was founded. The centre of the Old Town has always been the Old Town Square dominated by the Church of Our Lady of Tyn, the Town Hall, St Nicholas Church and many more. The Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings were preserved here. The Historical centre, including the majority of the city’s major sites, became a UNESCO listed site in 1992.
