Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí)

 
Wenceslas Square is the most beautiful and popular street in the new town of Prague.  The buildings there are competing with each other.  Nearly every one asks you to vote it as the most striking one in the boulevard.  They are a bit more modern than those in the Old Town Square.  Some of them are of rich origins.  Standing at the end is the National Museum, the most important place displaying Czech's history and music.  It also features special exhibitions, not necessarily history related.
 





Leisurely stroll along the boulevard and pay attention to the outlook and details of the buildings.  You will be amazed by the many beautiful details and decorations.  Raise your head high to admire sculpture on top of the building or the wall.  They are so beautiful.
























Located at the upper part of Wenceslas Square is Lucerna Palace.  The dominant statue of an upside down horse, by David Černý, draws local and overseas visitors. It is Prague's first multi-purpose complex since the beginning of 20th century.  Restaurants, movie centre, music bar dotted the place.
