All I could see were shops and few casinos. Probably the least traditional Czech area in the city. I didn't think it was going to be the spectacle that Amsterdam red light district is but I thought there would be something interesting to see. I...More

Get down at “Muzeum” metro station. Start walking to your right, there is the majestic National Museum on your left hand, and the beautiful Wenceslas Square right in front. Just go for a lazy walk around this place. Everyone here does that! The rustic street,...More

Did it. Check. It was a nice walk to and away from the square to see the architecture. The square itself did little to enhance our visit to Prague.

There is a view all the way up the square (more of an oblong) of the National Museum although in April 2018, it was entirely covered in a hoarding, so makes it a lot less impressive. Plus there’s massive advert on the hoarding. Prague, proudly...More

Even the buildings surrounding the square don't seem to have the architectural significance of those in Old Town. I believe, though, this square is the gathering spot for celebration as well as for dissent. On our visit, the square came alive with protesters. Some in...More

Nothing special, one monument, few kiosks with hot dog and sausages, few restaurants, and a lot of shops. But their marketing is great, and everything is for tourists...

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!
