I think that this is the only cubist lamppost in the world. It is just off Wenceslas Square but is not easy to find - you have to go looking for it, it is however worth seeing while you are there.

Nearly walked past this public art in Nove Mestro recently. We’d seen it online so knew what it was while sight- seeing in Prague recently. Provided a photo opportunity of an angular slightly chunky piece of art made from concrete by Emil Kralicek. Apparently is...More

I really wanted to see the Cubist lamppost whilst in Prague. However, I couldn't seem to locate it according to the directions I had so I had resigned myself to not seeing it. Then one day I was browsing in the Bata shoe shop and...More

Tucked away in a small side street near Wenceslas Square, were it not mentioned in guide books, this quirky little oddity, which I believe is unique in the world, would be missed by many.

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
