Not so much a square as a long rectangle, with shops on either side and the Christmas market running up the middle. Good shopping by day, and market was lovely by night, with different food and hot drinks. Doesn't have the atmosphere of the Old...More

This was one of the places on our Prague "must see" list but to be honest, it left us a bit underwhelmed. Yes, it's great for all the shops but we just felt it was lacking in atmosphere compared to the rest of the city.

This is a nice square that offers you many photo ops, good street food or places to drink and eat and people that are walking and enjoying like you.

We wanted to try the same sausage and DEEP FRIED CHEESE sandwich Antony Bourdain had tried during his visit to Prague so we went on a hunt to find the exact street food booth showed on his show. We found it and it was AMAZING....More

It is best remembered thronged by the thousands that sought a new freedom. It is less interesting in the day but the areas leading to it are lively, lined with shops and cafes and places to eat.

Probably best appreciated in the presence of a guide.... or better still someone who was there when “it” happened.

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

To be honest I wouldn't know. But given the historical relevance of Wenceslas Square I would doubt it!
