The square used to be a medieval horse market and a broad, slopin boulevard. It got its present name during the nationalist revival of the mid-19th century. From that point it was part of a great deal of the Czech history. To name a few:
In 1848 a giant Mass was held in the square during the revolutionary upheavals.
In 1918 the creation fo the new Czechoslovak Republic was celebrated here.
On 17 November 1989 there was a police attack on a student demonstration followed by angry citizens gathering together.
A week after 17 November 1989 Alexander Dubcek and Vaclav Havel stepped onto the balcony of the Melantrich Building telling people the communism in Czechoslovakia has became to an end.
