“Not cup of my tea”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Quiet charming place but full of seedy strangers and very weird food businesses. As we say in Britain, Not my cup of tea.

“Only if you like shops”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Had a bus tour which took us here, Probably great for shopping/ night life, not for sightseers. Seemed quite scruffy for a famous place. Did walk across the top of it from the "Dancing House" to Jindrisska Tower,which were both far more interesting places.

“Wenceslas Sq - Christmas has come early”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Wenceslas Sq exceeded expectations. A great cafe-restaurant culture with shops, fast-food kiosks, casinos, music events, retail & bric-a-brac outlets. Vibrant & cosmopolitan. A few tips:
1. At the eastern end is the National Museum - climb the steps to benefit from the elevated west-facing view down the entire length of the Square.
2. Cobbled pavements - so avoid high-heels and wear low sturdy footware to avoid any propsect of sprained ankles.
3. Try the COMO restaurant on the right-hand side, with the National Museum behind you - great rissotto & "soup-in bread".
4. English papers available at the kiosk top right hand side of the Sq when crossing over from the National Museum.
5. Continue the walk beyond the Sq into the Old Market Sq & beyond along "Karlova" to the Charles Bridge & Castle.
6. At the west end of the Sq [furthest from the Musuem] keep an eye out for notices directing you to "The Palladium" - a huge shopping mall over 4 or 5 floors.
Enjoy!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This square consists of about 12 short blocks. If one could place a glass dome over, it would become a museum of architecture second to none. There are specimens of Gothic, neo-classical, modernist, art nouveau, Art Deco, ditto... What an absolutely gorgeous walk down the square. Expensive stores line the walk way as do restaurants. Landscaping is lovely. The statue of Wenceslas in bronze reveals strength, courage, and justice. The National museum is located at one end. It is closed for renovation,

Easily accessed by tram and subway. One does not visit Prague without a pilgrimage to the square. It would be , well, unheard of....you could never admit to people you did not pay t
your respects to Czech hero's.

“A Statue of the hero”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

The location of the monument in the middle of the plaza. The place is easy to reach. Have the value of history, but that history is just like the dtidak statue of a horse. Beware of the beggar and pickpocket who also offer photos.
