Czech Republic: Walking around Prague's historic center
Like the previous day in Vienna, the day was cold. We made our way to the Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí), the heart of Prague's Old Town (Staré Město). Among the beautiful buildings and monuments you will see around the square are the Týn Church or Church of Mother of God before Týn (Kostel Matky Boží před Týnem), St. Nicholas Church, Jan Hus Memorial, the Astronomical Clock (Pražský orloj) and the Old Town Hall among many others.
I didn't realize that Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe was buried in the Týn Church. So I missed looking for his grave marker while we were there.
