It is nice here to take a photo and sit on a bench but other than that it is just a landmark with a lovely statue on it. Around the square are roads leading onto mainly restaurants such as McDonald's, KFC and a Turkish restaurant....More

The heart of nightlife in Prague, Wenceslas Square offers you convenience (metro stations, easy walk to the Old Town area), pubs aplenty and a bit of history as well!

This is an area where it is crowded and rowdy and you need to protect your personal belongings when passing through.

Square of modern shops that you could find in pretty much every major European city and typical suburban mall. Wasn't really worth going out of our way for. Cool view of the government building and statue at the top of the square - but still....More

It is difficult in Prague to fix which is the main square. Wenceslas square could be. A lot of attraction all around fromrestaurants, to bars and cafés and beautiful Art Noveau hotels.

Obviously a must-see spot in Prague, although the view isn't as amazing since they covered the National Musuem up the Square with constuction work. Still a nice place to walk around.

Wenceslas square is a beautiful square dotted with many restaurants, souvenir shops and vendors, but look past that and see a grand boulevard with the National museum and a large statue King Wenceslas. Always crowded day or night.

Nearly 700 hundred metres 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!
