Careful calculation of time is a must when travelling, especially when visiting famous landmarks and places. I say that because when we visited Prague’s Wenceslas square, it was a lovely morning but the sun was on that part casting shadows, thus, our silhouette photos.
The square is part of the city centre recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. The plaza has a very rich history having witnessed a number of demonstrations and gatherings. For one, it was in front of the Wenceslas monument where Alois Jirasek, Czech writer and Nobel Prize in Literature nominee, proclaimed the independence of Czechoslovakia in 1918.
Wenceslas square is lined up with many different establishments – we unfortunately didn’t go down further to take photos but the entire strip is composed of hotels, food establishments, offices and shops. What is most notable is the National Museum, designed by Czech architect Josef Schulz.
