Wenceslas Square, colloquially referred to as Václavák and known as Wenzelsplatz in German, was formerly named Saint Wenceslas Square and originally served as a horse market, known as Rossmarkt in German. Located in the New Town of Prague, it spans 750 meters in length and 60 meters in width, forming an elongated rectangle. The boulevard slopes from the National Museum to Můstek, bordering the Old Town. Over its history, Wenceslas Square has been witness to numerous significant events and has become a traditional venue for demonstrations, celebrations, and other mass gatherings. Often touted as the second-largest square in Prague and the Czech Republic, its upper part stands as the busiest pedestrian thoroughfare in the country.
