Wenceslas Square Shopping
Wenceslas Square, the largest square in Prague, is shopping for every taste. Virtually every building houses a shop – shoes, books, Bohemian crystal and everything you need or do not need. Add to this a number of department stores and you have shopping pleasure for hours, if not days. Tired of shopping? Relax in one of the cafés, outside in summer and inside in winter. Feel a little hungry? Buy a Czech sausage at one of the sausage stands in Wenceslas Square – the ultimate Prague delicacy!
Wenceslas Square is impressive. Stand on the steps of the National Museum for a sweeping view. The square gently slopes down and swarms with shopping and sightseeing people. With a length of 750 meters and a width of 60 meters, Wenceslas Square is rather a broad avenue than a square – shops, department stores, hotels, restaurants and cafés on all sides. Start you shopping trip at the National Museum end and walk down the gently sloping square. Less fatiguing and you’ll save energy for more shopping.
