This square is situated on the site of the former moat between the Old and New Towns. The large open space near the medieval city centre inspired the construction of a number of significant buildings at the turn of the 20th century, such as the Municipal House (Obecní dům) near the Powder Tower (Prašná brána), the Hybernia House (Dům U Hybernů) and the Jiří z Poděbrad Barracks. A large part of the square is now a pedestrian zone connecting the two large shopping centres Palladium and Kotva.

I like walking around the various town squares in any city I visit. You get to see a lot of people while soaking in the past of the city. A lot of photo ops.

A lot happens in this square. There are beautiful buildings and food market with various stalls. There was garbage on the ground that others had left and that was unfortunate. Other places in the city were much cleaner. A fun place to people watch.

A big square we passed it a number of times on the tour bus then walked through it. It is of historic significance with many protests to uphold freedom being held here and many losing their lives to do that .

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

Agree with contacting TA on this one: it's the way that the attraction is listed (probably started by one of the first reviewers long ago.) Can't imagine it would be difficult to correct.
