Wenceslas Square in Prague is one of the main squares in the city centre. It was named after Saint Wenceslas, the patron saint of Bohemia and was originally used as a horse market. The square has the shape of a long rectangle measuring 750 m and is more a boulevard than a square. The end of this long boulevard is dominated by the National Museum, the oldest and largest museum of the Czech Republic. Along Wenceslas Square are many banks, hotels and businesses, making it a great location for shopping.
It is also the place where important events took place in the Czech history. The independent republic Czechoslovakia was declared here on 28th October 1918. During the Velvet Revolution in 1989, large demonstrations were held here.
