It was a great experience and I had a great view of the old town from the astronomical clock. The only confusing part is that the app says it’s ticket but when you get there, they will tell you that it’s only a voucher so you still need to get in line on the ticketing booth.

Cool experience, great view, but very difficult to figure out where to take the tickets. We had to take the tickets up to a booth on the third floor to exchange for the entry tickets.

Our guide Manuel was knowledgeable and had interesting Czech legends to share, as well as architectural and historical facts. He took us down streets we would have missed.

Too crowded to enjoy. Go very early or very late or pick a time in the year when not many tourists are there

Great views over the city, the only issue was the queue, would have been better with a time slot
