Photographer's Note

Wenceslas Square

Enough churches in Prague for the time being, here is a completely different part of the city, but also a quite famous one. The photo zooms in on some of the fa蓷de along Wenceslas Square (V塶lavsk n嫥ěst), a central point in the New Town district (Nov Město) of Prague. Many historic events took place here, it was the site where Jan Palach set himself on fire in 1969 as a protest against the invasion of Czechoslovakia following the Prague Spring, a series of liberalisations by newly-elected First Secretary of the Communist Party Alexander Dubček. Twenty years later, the square saw mass demonstrations during the Velvet Revolution of November and December 1989. The square is named for Saint Wenceslas, the patron saint of Bohemia.
