Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I want to able to have all polygons in a city or a specific area. Basically, I like to download them all with their location name. For example, extracting polygon of every building in Prag. How can I do that? Thanks

While in principle it is possible to do this with the Overpass API/Overpass turbo, doing it for a larger city is likely to fail because of processing time and output size issues.

The alternative is to download current OSM data covering your area of interest (for example from Geofabrik), extract, filter and convert (to a format with instantiated geometries) yourself. For example with Osmium.
