At the top of Wenceslas Square, the statue of St. Wenceslas (Svatý Václav) on his horse cuts a striking figure. This is the "good King Wenceslas", who was murdered over a thousand years ago by his brother Boleslav, and now a Czech national hero. In front of St. Wenceslas there are two plaques in memory of those killed during the Communist era. One is dedicated to Jan Palach, who set himself on fire in protest at the Soviet invasion.
