The Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí in Czech) is a central square of the New Town. Though not the largest square in Prague (which is the Charles Square), it is probably the busiest. It is one of the two best known squares for tourists in the city centre (the Old Town Square is the other, 5 minutes walk away), and as such is a very popular place to stay.
The 750m long and 60m wide boulevard that makes up Wenceslas Square was laid out over 600 years ago during the reign of Emperor Charles IV, who founded the New Town of Prague. It was originally used as the Prague horse market.
