Vaclavske namEsti, Prague
Originally conceived as a medieval horse market, pedestrian-friendly Vaclavske namEsti is now one of modern Prague's major symbols, named in honor of Bohemia's patron saint. More a boulevard than a traditional square, this long space is part of the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Dominated by a Neoclassical building housing the national museum of natural history, the square covers an area of about 4.5 hectares (11 acres). The square's focal point is an equestrian statue of Saint Wenceslas, a popular meeting point for both tourists and natives. A standout among the square's Art Nouveau landmarks is a hotel designed by architect Vaclav Havel, whose grandson became the first president of the Czech Republic. Our Prague trip planner makes visiting Vaclavske namEsti and other Prague attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Vaclavske namEsti Reviews
Alloggiavo con amici in un hotel vicino a questa ampia piazza. Molto bella da visitare per una passeggiata lungo tutta la sua estensione. Ricca di negozi, locali, bar e birrerie.

Of course, a few stylistically interesting buildings, Art Nouveau, neo-renaissance and important monuments are worthwhile. Shopping, on the other hand, with its futuristically astronomical prices, forms a noticeable monetary counterweight to the historical significance of the square. So run up and down once. ready.
