(Czech: Pomník svatého Václava)
This magnificent monument stands in tribute to Saint Wenceslas. It's an equestrian statue, almost at the apex of the eponymous square, just in front of the National museum.
The Statue of Saint Wenceslas formerly stood in the middle of Wenceslas Square, near Grandhotel Evropa, it was moved to Vyšehrad in 1879.
During the Czech national revival movement in the 19th century, a more noble name for the street was requested. At this time the square was renamed and new Statue of Saint Wenceslas was built in 1912.
