Originally conceived as a medieval horse market, pedestrian-friendly Wenceslas Square (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 Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske namEsti) and other Prague attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
