Wenceslas Square has plenty to see and do. There are countless shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions including the National Museum. It is also really close to the Old Town Square so both areas can be visited in one day.

There are many interesting shops on Vaclavske namesti, but don't be afraid to take the passages. The passages take you away from the main tourist area to smaller more interesting shops. One of them ends at a peaceful park with a beautiful church.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
