Big square with traffic and a lot of construction work. Quiet dirty and a lot of buildings are like in socialism. Statue of Vaclav and museum building is nice, just reconstructed.

The Man on a horse appeared to be the centerpiece of this Square. I learned that historical gatherings had take place at this location! Stores, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. can be found on both sides of the wide boulevard or street.

Strictly speaking, this is not a square, but a slightly steep and crowded shopping boulevard. You find all the shops, cafes, restaurants here from top to bottom, where you find again open-stalls selling Czec street food such as hot roast, potato and the overrated trdelníks....More

Very nice place in the heart of Prague. It is a very crowded place full of tourist. Better to visit by public transport or simply by walk. Hopefully, Prague city will restore it into the old layout with a lot of trees on sides. Nice...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

To be honest I wouldn't know. But given the historical relevance of Wenceslas Square I would doubt it!
