The area
Address
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.

The hanging man above your head is Sigmund Freud, who was born in Freiburg, which is now part of the Czech Republic.

It looks like he is about to commit suicide, except he is just hanging around watching the world go by. You might easily miss this artwork if you don’t walk with your head up.

Location: Intersection of Husova and Betlémské náměstí

I found that statue very fun to try to locate and to finally find it was satisfying. Prague has many statues sprinkled around the city and this one is definitely one of the best ones in my opinion. It’s very close to the city center as well so very easily accessible.

Prague is a great city to visit with its lovely buildings , bars etc . It also has dotted through out a number of quirky and surprising attention catchers . We found the man and woman with the umbrellas by chance and after that we learned to look up as well as ahead because you didn’t know what is round the corner and the hanging man is just one of them . I’m sure there is a story behind it and it is one I will investigate .

This sculpture can be a bit difficult to find. When I did find it, I was amazed. A sculpture seemingly hanging in mid-air and I didn't see the supporting beam because I saw it first from Betlémské nám. Awesome and clever.

Went to Prague with some close friends for my coming out party. I was deliriously happy mincing down the street when I spotted what appeared to be a gallows hanging from the roof of a building. Standing transfixed in the street I reached for my camera and was run down by a passing tram. The last week of the trip was spent with tubes coming into and out of every orifice.
Not recommended, wouldn't hang out with this crowd again :-(

Man hanging of the building ..high up against the sky...
If you are not ready for it it can scare the daylights out of you.

It is actually quite realistic statue. Freud is barely hanging on with one hand, the other is casually stuck in his pocket.

It is one of David Cerny's slightly bizarre artworks ..left to interpretation ...
Look for it when you are in Old Town.
It is free of charge for all to enjoy...

It's a really clever little statue, fun and amusing. It's a fitting memorial to a cocaine addict whose life's work has most been refuted and abandoned. He's just hanging on with a last grip almost dropping into the abyss. Very symbolic.
