    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.

    Wenceslaus Square From The Statue

    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.

    Wenceslas Square

    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 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.

    the view from the Museum

    Wenceslas Square is long and wide square dominating with the National Museum on the top. It is shopers paradise, packed with shops, galeries, restaurants...I loved it at night.

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

    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.

    The National museum

    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.

    Wenzelsplatz

    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.

    Just below the Wenceslas Statue is the poignant memorial - an unofficial shrine to Jan Palach who burnt himself to death in protest at the Soviet occupation of Prague

    Wiehl House

    Fresco detail of Wiehl House-Wenceslas Square

    Named for the designer Antonin Wiehl, this late 19th century building is ornately decorated in frescoes. It is an interesting contrast the the commercialism that surrounds it. Just worth a look.

    I've been to Prague three times and never liked the Square. It's nothing special.... the only nice thing might be the view from the top and the National Museum.

    Vaclavske Namesti, looking toward the Natl Museum

    This pedestrian-friendly boulevard is Prague's main commercial thoroughfare. I was pretty excited to see a bar owned by none other than Jaromir Jagr, the best hockey player in the world.

    This long narrow square is the Broadway or 5th avenue of Prague. Here you will find plenty of clothing and jewelry stores. It is also full of business and resturants including Dunkin Donuts.

    The centre of Prague and a historic site. Here russian tanks have made havoc in 1968 and Vaclav Havel have made famous speaches. And it is also a beautifull place.
