While at this square, every spot has some restaurant, apartment, hotel, night club or bar, ready to be occupied by both tourists and the locals.

According to several tourists, a room with a decent price will not be hard to find in the Wenceslas Square.

Another good news for all sightseers, the Old Town Square is a mere 5 minutes away from the Wenceslas Square, and it is full of interesting historical things, like the Prague Astronomical Clock, the Jan Hus Memorial statue and many more. Therefore, in short, staying in the Wenceslas Square area means a short visit to the following places: the Old Town Square and the Charles Bridge.

Laid in 1348 by Charles IV, the New Town is exactly where the Wenceslas Square is situated. The entire area is about 750 meters long, often witnessing parades from time to time, both for political parties and for other profit or non-profit organizations. Previously known as the Prague Horse Market, the Wenceslas Square consists of the Prague State Opera and the National Museum, both of which witness hundreds of visitors on a daily basis.
