We really enjoyed seeing this 'upside down statue', it was much larger than i had imagined. Situated in a nice little shopping arcade, the café Lucerna upstairs does the best hot chocolates too.

One of my favorite quirky features of this beautiful city. This very old art work is in the center of a gorgeous covered passage that contains a movie theater, some good restaurants and cafes and a wine store.

This is a beautiful sculpture and even better it is within a stunning shopping arcade. There is a lovely restaurant/bar/cafe where you can sit and look at the sculpture from a closer perspective.

We wouldn’t have found this without Jason of LivingPrague tours but Lucerna is gorgeous and we enjoyed seeing this statue. There’s a lovely little cafe at the top of the stairs where you can enjoy the view and the stained glass windows

Not much to say given there is a picture here. It's not to difficult to find the Lucerna if you keep your eyes open as you go down Vodickova. The Lucerna is worth a look in its own right.

We would have missed this except for Rick Steve’s description as to how to find it. It is in a sort of mall just off Wenceslas Square and yes, worth the trip to see it.

Well worth seeking out shopping centre opposite Grand Europe hotel. Shopping arcade architecture worth a visit a few cafes and bars there

Because of its peculiarity, I tried hard looking for it. Without any Inet data on my mobile, I relied on my memory concerning its location. I knew it's near Wenceslas Square, near Starbucks and near Jan Palach Memorial. When I almost surrendered searching for it,...More

One of the many scultures in the city by Prague-born artist David Cerny, this was probably our favorite. Located in the Lucerna Palace shopping arcade, this is Cerny's unique take on the famous St. Wenceslas statue in nearby Wenceslas Square. Our walking tour took us...More

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
