Wenceslas Square Hotels
One of the most popular places to stay in Prague, Wenceslas Square is probably the only place from where most of Prague¡¦s sights and attractions lie at a walking distance. Shopping, entertainment and nightlife; this place has it all. Originally used as Prague¡¦s main horse market, the Wenceslas Square was founded over 600 years ago during the reign of Charles IV and covers a span of 750 m long and 60 m wide boulevard. The place can accommodate almost 400,000 people at any given time! The Wenceslas Square today stands as a hub of major activity and is Prague at its busiest and nosiest. Be it the anti-communist uprising or the winning of the World Hockey Championships, this is where the Czechs come to protest and celebrate. A famous one being in 1989, when thousands of people gathered here to rejoice over the death of the Communist Party. Right at the top of the Wenceslas Square, the statue of St. Wenceslas, upright on his horse holds your attention. And just in case you want to wander around, just behind it is the historical National Museum and nearby the famous Prague State Opera. As a respite for the flocking visitors, there are plans to rid the Wenceslas Square of cars, bury the highway in front of the museum in a tunnel and have tram Na 11 make a come-back.
