Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

Although I saw David Černý's In Utero sculpture many times on past trips -- it's near The Bakeshop, a wonderful place for sweets and more near Old Town -- this summer she was not there anymore. I have no idea where she moved.

The above big portrait sculpture (In Utero by David Cerny) I could not find but then did not look for. I refer to the Man with the umbrella sculpture as there seem to be a few reviews here and I could not find it listed elsewhere in Trip Advisor.Here I write about it. The location of the man with umbrella sculpture I photographed is at the intersection of Na Zborenci and Odboru, New Town.
Well worth seeing.

My Husband and myself were wandering the streets of Prague recently, map in hand and just generally embracing our Prague sight-seeing experience when we came across the sculpture of a hanging man with umbrella at the intersection of Na Zborenci and Odboru, New Town. (11th January 2018) I was told when in Prague to look up, down and around, stand still and absorb the architecture. Good advice as we nearly missed this piece of art installation.

Apparently while researching the sculpture, I found it was created in six months by a wonderful artist named Michal Trpak and called Slight Uncertainty who likes to make sculptures mainly for open public spaces. The airborne man hanging from the cables in the street among the buildings is made of polyester and represents the people belonging to the working middle class society and hit hard in the recession. It was once part of a bigger display. The figure portrays sadness, despair and instability.

We didn’t hang around long enough to get closer but wish I had researched and broadened my knowledge about it before accidently discovering it, as it has more meaning and depth to the sculpture for me now.

As for the sculpture of the man hanging with the umbrella....Well worth looking up, if you pardon the pun.

No sight anywhere, walked around for quite a bit. Maybe it is in repairs or something. Double-check.

We stumbled across this statue when we were walking to get lunch and thought it was pretty cool. Not sure what people are talking about saying it does exist anymore? Maybe it has changed locations but it was definitely there when I was in Prague January 2018 (see picture). It’s near Praha 1 on the corner of Odburo and Myslíkova streets. Enjoy!

On looking up I saw a guy hanging from an umbrella from a wire and just around the corner a lady hanging from an umbrella also. Just behind the lady there was a large sculpture of a fly on the building. The building to the other side had giant lit up bugs. We only saw this as we Sam giant mushroom sculptures that interested us.

It most definitely does not exist where it's supposed to be. Don't bother searching for the statue. Seems like the woman gave birth to the babies, that are now at Kampa park.

While walking towards James Dean Cafe/Restaurant we stumble upon this very interesting statue. It is located right across the street from the restaurant and as a very unique design. I guess the statue symbolizes a woman giving birth. Very weird, strange and yet...we enjoyed spending time there trying to figure it out!

We searched for a long time before realising it was no longer in situ: on line photos showed the exact location which we verified visually. Very disappointed.

Next to the building just outside of Kampa Park, you will see the babies crawling on all fours. Someone wrote that it no longer exists and I really don't know. I'm hoping it's still there. I enjoy this area of Prague because it's on the quiet side and I find it to be beautiful. It's also close to the John Lennon wall among other things. Definitely worth checking to see if it's still there. You can, at the very least, meander; A very charming area. I do recommend reading about Cerny prior to your trip in order to better understand his vision.
