The Wenceslas Square is a popular and quite crowded square in Prague. It was named after the Saint Wenceslas, the Patron Saint of Bohemia. Formerly it was known as the Horse Market as there were horse markets here periodically during the Middle Ages.

Today the Wenceslas Square is a great place for shopping lovers as you will find several shops on both sides of the street along the square and in the end of the square you can find the neoclassical Czech National Museum. The Wenceslas Square has a good location in town, only a few minutes away from the Old Town Square.

The Wenceslas square in fact feels more like a boulevard. It is around 750 meters long, and has the form of a rectangle.
