Wenceslas Statue

Monument in Nové Město

The focal point of Wenceslas Square is the equestrian statue of St Wenceslas at its upper (southern) end. Sculptor Josef Myslbek has surrounded the 10th-century duke of Bohemia (and the 'Good King Wenceslas' of Christmas carol fame) with four other patron saints of Bohemia – Prokop, Adalbert, Agnes and Ludmila.
