    Another historical place of Prague is this long square in the center and every tourist will cross it sooner or later. The biggest demonstrations against the communism leaders took place here in the late sixties. The horse monument for the holy Vaclava remembers of the first Czechoslovakian Republic from 1918.

    Near Wenceslas square and Narodni museum, this small street market is a nice stop, with several products available. Being with women...

    Much more a major avenue like the Champs Elysse than a mere square this is the center of the new town. Its about 8 blocks of shops and restaraunts with the National Museum anchoring one side.

    This sculpture decorates the department store called Lucerna situated at one of the side streets of Wenceslaus Square. I read about it on VT and I'm glad I saw it because the sculpture is fun to see.

    Wenceslas statue-Josef Vaclav Myslbek

    by BruceDunning Written Nov 11, 2007

    The statue is of Josef Vaclav Myslbek, so famous, the street is named after him also. He overlooks the 3 block long main part of the street, with further walking off a split area down at the end.

    In Wenceslas Square you can view a statue of Mr. Slas himself, high on his horse and ready to battle some pagans or what have you.

    Bustling City Center With Tourists And Shopping

    We enjoyed our time at Wenceslaus Square, window shopping and watching the tourists from all over the world. Wenceslaus feels more like a "downtown" area than any other part of Prague.

    Simply walking up and down and really in the center of the 'square' was good enough for me. Visit Jagr's Sports Bar which is right off one of the streets.

    The New Town

    The new town is an historic place but not the nicest one of Prague. Remains of the communist area are visible and the area is not as well kept as others. Still, a must because of its history.

    Wenceslas Square is Prague's main strip for hotels, shops, bars and restuarants. The National Museum sits at the top of the square.

    Can take the Metro (to Mustek) to the square or simply walk from Old Town Square. Lots of retail and one of the centers of life in Prague.

    Wenceslas Square is really a very wide avenue with a lot of shops down both sides, plus hotels and eateries with the Narodni museum at it's head.

    Not really a must see!

    The square is one of the most known place in Prague. Even then, it is not a must see for me!

    It is nothing nice to see, too expensive for shopping and ugly hookers along the street in the night.
