We came into the square from the northwestern end, with a nice view down to the National Museum dating from the 1880s.

|As close as we got to the National Museum|
Calling it a square doesn't really do it justice, since the boulevard is 820 yards long, nearly half a mile. The first thing we ran across in the square was a long line of small buildings that served food, especial for the thronging nighttime crowds, which we completely missed on our morning adventure.
|Booths closed at 9 in the morning|
|Whatever it is, it looks good|
A good variety of beautiful buildings line the street, typically with restaurants or stores on the ground floor. We eventually found snacks at a cafe.
|Pretty in pink|
|I'm guessing this was built during the Communist-era|
|Jacob was excited to have his picture taken!|
|More pretty buildings|
|Can someone move the food stands?|
Many of the details of the buildings are striking as well.
|Lions and soldiers!|
|I think this was a bank|
|Me and my statue|
We could also see the Powder Gate, one of the gates of the old city, down a street.

Many commercial enterprises are found on Wenceslas Square as well. Here are the few that caught our eyes.
|Only one dancing girl?|
|Yes, you have to pay to pee|
|GE has banks, too?|
We enjoyed this last morning visit before we got on a train to head to our next destination, Budapest!
