Wenceslas Square, Prague: 159 reviews and 275 photos


Wenceslas Square (Václavské Námestí) and the surrounding streets is the main shopping area in Prague, but you?ll also find many good restaurants there, the national museum, and the state opera and central station nearby. Charles IV turned this former horse market into a square and it is the longest in Prague. Wenceslas Square has played an important role in the history of the Czech people, most recently as the focal point in the Velvet Revolution of 1989, which led to the resignation of the entire Communist Party leadership and the formation of a new coalition government.
