It's not going to blow you away but it's a must see in prague. It's kind of central and a food place to start

Busy and slightly overrated. Maybe it’s better at the crack of dawn with no people around. I’d suggest walking across the bridges on either side and viewing it from afar.

The bridge must be visited early in the morning otherwise it's crowded. There are so many statues to see on the bridge that half an hour is not enough to cross it. Take your time and enjoy the view.

Headed to the bridge early in the morning to beat the crowd before i started my day for Terezin Concentration Camp Tour. A wise choice to go there early to enjoy the scenery and take couple of pictures without alot tourist and street vendor.

We've only been to Prague in May and their are usually some type of musical performers and artisans. However, it will be cold. I have heard that Wenceslas Square might have more performers during that time of year.
