Overall, this is part of the walking tour.Parking: n/aSubway: muzeum (red/green) or Můstek (Line A/green)Entrance cost: FreeTime cost: Less than an hourSo much history here: (brief list)On 28 October 1918, Alois Jirásek read the proclamation of independence of Czechoslovakia in front of the Saint Wenceslas statue.They held many demonstrations here: Prague uprising and velvet revolutions.The northwest side is the border between Old Town and New Town.The southeast side has the Statue of Saint Wenceslas and the National Museum.Yes, as other people mentioned, the square is lined with commercial business shops. Hopefully, it will keep the architecture of the old buildings. Pro-tip: I would avoid the overpriced, touristy restaurants.Overall: So, if you can visit, I would highly recommend visiting Prague/Czech during Oct 2018 which marks their 100 year anniversary.Otherwise, it will continue to be part of the walking tour.
Wenceslas square is one of the main square in Prague, it is the center of the Prague metro commercial and cultural life. As if the old town square is a representative of the ancient buildings, wenceslas square is the masterpiece of modern life. Once rally of celebration, now square is regarded as a "wonderful avenue" Prague. History shows long and narrow rectangle wenceslas square has a history of over 600 years ago, many historical events in this has ever happened, is a traditional demonstrations, celebration and other public gathering places.
Beautiful view from the center of the square. Definitely check out the book shops here!
Good place to come and sit with a beer for people and architecture watching.
If you're walking around Wenceslas square you cannot help but notice the many stalls selling sausages and other quick meals. The sausages are surprisingly nice but the best thing in my opinion is the fried cheese served in a bun with mayo and a leaf of green salad. Cheap, oily, filling and the best thing in the world when you're drunk. It was also featured as a thing to do in Anthony Bourdain's No reservations episode on Prague and I think he nailed it.
