This is right in the center of town and is a long, wide square reminiscent of Paris. Lots of shopping, restaurants and people watching. It goes up a hill somewhat so be prepared for a bit of a walk....but well worth it.

Visited this square & were not very impressed. Lots of construction & not much to view. Enjoyed the historical significance - but not sure it rates a visit.

Prague was lovely. However, I heard so much hype about it that I expected something more amazing then ever experienced. People were nice, but not overly. The historical sites were wonderful as expected. I’m glad I went but would not consider returning. Does not compare...More

Wenceslas Square is right in the centre of Prague - within walking distance of the Clock Tower, old city hall and many other attractions. If you love books, there is one nice book store. Lots of hotels, restaurants, shops.

This is a very central place where it is possible to hang out for a coffee, look at the buildings and also to start a free tour throughout the city.

After some time coming, back Wenceslas square lost its shine. Still a lot of traffic, some reconstruction in lower part and crowds. Offering many shops, fast foods, restaurants, pubs, some hotel in busy part of Prague. It would be great to see clean walking 🚶‍♀️...More

Visited on a glorious sunny day. Unfortunately massive metal screens up the pedestrian area and scaffold round the building, so a bit disappointing in my opinion.

There really was a Wenceslas, like the Christmas song! Prague is an urban city, yet it is a beautiful and cultural city, with so much beautiful, old architecture. Wencelsas' statue is in a large plaza. There is traffic, but there is a large pedestrian green...More

Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square

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!
