The area
Neighbourhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

Marking were the Old Town ( Stare Mesto ) meets the New Town ( Nove Mesto ) is Jungmann Square ( Jungmannovo Namesti ) a great starting point to explore this most beautiful of city's.
This square is special to me ,30 odd years ago it was more or less the first place I visited ,love it then ,love it now ,great architecture forms the square ,Adria Palace ,Church Of Our Lady Of The Snow to name but two of the great buildings that form the square ,there's a great monument in honour of Josef Jungmann ( 1772-1847 ) which gives the square it's name and befitting such a great square are lots of cafés ,bars ,pubs and restaurants ,all in all a great square to check out if you're planning a holiday to Prague.

A great starting point to explore either The New Town or The Old Town is Jungmann Square were the two districts meet.
The square is special,a proliferation of great architecture ,the most notable buildings are Adria Palace and Church Of Our Lady Of The Snow but there are many other beautiful buildings to view ,the square is named in honour of Josef Jungmann ( 1772-1847 ) the prolific writer and translator whose statue is the centrepiece of this square ,it's a wonderful square to check out if you're in the area and only a minute away from Mustek Metro Station.

On any holiday I take I always pay my favourite pub U Pinkasu a visit which brings me into Jungmannovo Square which is such a pretty square .
Jungmannovo Square ( Jungmannovo Náměstí ) basically separates the Old Town and the New Town and is named in honour of Josef Jungmann ( 1772 - 1847 ) who was a prolific writer and translator whose statue dominates this cute little square.
Surrounded by beautiful architecture, I love the look of Pálac Adria a great example of Rondo Cubist architecture, the wonderful Cubist lamppost is the only Cubist lamppost in the world looks awesome but to me the stunning Church Of Our Lady Of The Snow is the most beautiful feature of the square,a beautiful Gothic church,there are also innumerable pubs,bars and restaurants around the square including one of my favourite pubs namely the aforementioned U Pinkasu which incidentally was one of the first pubs to serve pilsner urquell beer in Prague.
Jungmann Square is easy to locate, just jump the metro to stop Můstek which drops you off by the square.
Well worth checking out.

We were fortunate to be able to look out on this lovely little square from our hotel window.
Josef Jungmann (1773-1847) was a Czech poet and linguist and is considered to be a co-creator of the modern Czech language.
A two minute walk brings you to the Franciscan Gardens, and Church of Our Lady of the Snows. A Mustek is immediately at the edge of the square, and across the street is the Rondocubist Adria Palace where the Velvet revolution was conceived

This square stands on the line that divides the Old Town and the New Town. Jungmannovo square or Jungmannovo Náměstí was named after the prolific writer and Czech National revivalist Josef Jungmann. You can see his statue in the middle of the square. You can see some unique Czech buildings here like the heavily sculptured Rondo-Cubist Palác Adria and the Gothic church of Our Lady of the Snow. This square is historically significant because the theater in the basement of the Adria Palace was the place where the 1989 Velvet Revolution was planned and thought out.
Do not miss the unique cubist Lamp Post.
