The area
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.

This attraction is a drain pipe where a part of the pipe is a piece of art. Slightly diverting, not especially amusing and to be honest, not very attractive to look at.

Bigger than it looks, easy to find

It is a little creepy but it does look like a foetus in the sac. I saw it at dusk when it glowed and you can see a heart beat. I liked the other Cerny sculptures so was glad to see this too. Very close to Charles Bridge and attached to a drainpipe outside the theatre.

This looks like a mashed boxers ear, or a misfit baked beans. Awful eyesore. Don't find it, it's creepy.

Not One of Cerny's Best
Sep 2017 • Couples
The sculptor David Cesny has a number of whimsical, bold sculptures all over Prague. Interestingly, there is no brochure to guide you. You need to find them on the Internet and then track them down, which was a fun thing to do since they can be in out-of-the-way or hidden locations. Also, most of the time people are walking right by them, not knowing one of his sculptures is right in front of them. On a drain pipe attached to the Divadlo Na Zábradlí theater in the Old Town is a piece he calls Embryo, which. It is not his best piece, but it was enjoyable just trying to locate it. One website described the sculpture as a “fetus is trying to get through a narrow pipe which most probably refers to how difficult for artists is to be understood by narrow-minded people.”

Not worth finding
Jun 2017 • Friends
This sculpture compared to all his other ones are by far the worse. I don't think it was worth us finding and walking to it. If you happen to come across it than sure but don't go looking for it.
