This is a beautiful sculpture and even better it is within a stunning shopping arcade. There is a lovely restaurant/bar/cafe where you can sit and look at the sculpture from a closer perspective.

We wouldn’t have found this without Jason of LivingPrague tours but Lucerna is gorgeous and we enjoyed seeing this statue. There’s a lovely little cafe at the top of the stairs where you can enjoy the view and the stained glass windows

Not much to say given there is a picture here. It's not to difficult to find the Lucerna if you keep your eyes open as you go down Vodickova. The Lucerna is worth a look in its own right.

We would have missed this except for Rick Steve’s description as to how to find it. It is in a sort of mall just off Wenceslas Square and yes, worth the trip to see it.

One of the many scultures in the city by Prague-born artist David Cerny, this was probably our favorite. Located in the Lucerna Palace shopping arcade, this is Cerny's unique take on the famous St. Wenceslas statue in nearby Wenceslas Square. Our walking tour took us...More

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
