Nice statue and history, but okay if you miss this one with everything else to see in Prague. Convenient to walking around to the other sites, so it's easy to it into your agenda if you'd like to see it.

A massive part of Czech history and a realistic and beautiful sculpture but Prage has so so many of them that they sort of lose a bit of their charm aand appeal. Worth seeing though.

Most probably on every square of the world there must be a statue or fountain or something similar. Here you have the Bohemian king on horse.

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
