"Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske Namesti)" Wenceslas Square Tip by bugalugs

Wenceslas Square, Prague: 159 reviews and 275 photos


We found Wenceslas Square to be a bit scruffy, lots of paper flying about the road/pavements. Also a lot of roadworks going on at the time.
This is a place where people usually congregate as in 1989 when the people no longer wanted to be ruled under communism. From a building called Melantrich, Alexander Dubcek and Viclav Havel stepped onto a balcony to tell the people that communism there was finished. These people must have been so delighted.

Address: Vaclavske namesti
