City Skyline: Views of Prague from the Old Town Hall Tower

The skyline views of Prague from the Old Town Hall Tower is amazingly breathtaking. If you are standing in the middle of the Old Town Square, the Old Town Hall is a dominant structure that catches your eyes. The Gothic Tower has a unique astronomical clock that dates back to 1410.

Unfortunately, when I visited there last summer, the clock was invisible, covered in tarpaulin, due to the ongoing renovation. This clock is called Orloj. What makes it unique is that from 9 in the morning to 11 in the evening, the images of 12 apostles appear. Isn’t that cool? Too bad, I didn’t see it! 🙁 Despite its makeover, the Gothic Tower was still accessible.

Best Time to go up to the Tower

I would highly recommend you go up there an hour before the sunset. You’ll be able to see the views during the day, at sunset and early evening. It’s magical! The red-tiled roof, the castle, golden domes, skinny towers, and numerous spires scattered across the cities are a sight you’d never forget too soon.

Hostel in Prague – Where to Stay

I stayed at Cosmopole Hostel in a busy area where public transport to and from the train station is just a few steps from the door. The Old Town is around 20 minutes walk, passing by some of the city’s unique architecture. The hostel is surrounded by shops and cafes that are even late at night. The rooms are quite small but with only four people in it, you can still move around comfortably. Be aware that Prague is pretty expensive, so finding cheap accommodation can be a challenge. It’s also super touristy here, the earlier you book, the better you have the chance to get a bed space.

These hostels are in the center of the Old Town: SafeStay Prague and Hostel Homer. If you can afford, the Corinthia Hotel Prague is for you.
