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.
The main shopping street in Prague is also where the citizens held their Velvet Revolution and where the Soviets advanced their troops into the city (mistakenly shooting the National Museum as they had confused it with the Parliament). Wenceslas Square is packed with stores, restaurants and bars. Visit the Palac Bookstore on the eastern side of the square for floor after floor of books (it is easy to get lost in there). Also, there are often markets and stalls at both the top and bottom of the square.
you have got to meet a friend. On chance is to do so at the tail of the king's horse. Wenceslas place gives you a light idea of the Champs Elyssee. Lots of coffees, picture houses, restaurants, and of course fast food nowadays. At the lower edge you find kiosks with sausages and buns, or other things you may like to eat or drink right away
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.
Vaclavske namesti as we called it is good to see of course but I think there are much better places in Prague. This square is totally overcrowded, very and very noisy. You should see the monument and in case you want to shop you will find a lot of places for it in there.
Worth a look around and to wait for the astronomical clock to chime, but take a look onto rijna toward the Museum and you will see one of the greatest moden art statues of our time. Personally I think this is a hats off from Czech Republic Tourist board to all the hen nights who visit.
