    Pretty walk around the park. Great views and I bet it’s spectacular in summer. Easy to reach by public transport. Play park for kids. Few cafes but you have to pay to use toilets

    Pretty cool looking status in Praha. The color, material and shapes it takes. The movement occurs the first 15 minutes of every hour

    Religious or not, this place is a stunning one. The whole complex is filled with one-of-a-kind art. From the church itself, to the small stone chapel and the precious jewels, everything was breathtaking.

    This is a hanging sculpture of Sigmund Freud. Its interpretations are quite varied, depending on the particular source accessed.

    One such interpretation: Freud had a severe phobia about his own death - should he hold on or let go. In the end, I think Freud chose assisted suicide. (Apparently, he also had a fear of heights.)

    Another interpretation:
    The powerlessness and hopelessness of man in the modern world, but not willing to let go. Why the subject is Freud may be related to the question of what role intellectuals would play in modern times.

    Whatever the interpretation, the structure is certainly novel..

    Situated along Husova Street. If you’re heading down towards Charles Bridge from the Old Town Square, along Karlova, keep an eye open for Karlova’s intersection with Husova. Turn left and keep going until Husova Street becomes Na Perstyne (~ 210 m.). Then look up.

    Walking around Zizkov District is something I always love doing on any trip to Prague I take ,so many great pubs,bars and restaurants in this eclectic district, overlooking the wonderful district is this giant equestrian statue in honour of Jan Zizka who defeated the Catholic forces lead by Sigismund in the Battle Of Vitkov Hill in 1420 ,the statue was actually to honour of the fallen Czech legionaries who perished in World War One, its a fine ,well detailed statue constructed between 1928-1938, its most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the Zizkov District and hard to miss ,its that big a statue

    This sculpture of three giant crawling babies is located in the beautiful Kampa Park next to the Mala Strana quarter. The bronze sculptures are made by Czech sculptor David Cerny. More contemporary art can be found in the Kampa Museum next to the sculpture.

    The two guys taking a pee sent me into gales of laughter. The two guys peeing on a map of the sculptor’s own country did not send me into gales of laughter. An unusual sculpture to say the least. Easily accessed because it’s right in front of the Franz Kafka Museum. Don’t know why TA doesn’t include an English listing for these sculptures - ‘Peeing Characters’.

    If you like a bit of art or sculpture it is worth seeing this piece by David Černy. The shopping arcade can be entered from both Vodičkova and Štepánská streets. We entered from Štepánská and it was easy to find the entrance. The arcade itself is worth looking at - we didn’t spend enough time here to be honest. The sculpture itself is much bigger than I thought it would be and is quite stunning. If you are in the vicinity and enjoy this type of art, definitely visit and take a look around.

    In my opinion Prague and the Czech Republic in General is such a happy place,it's people are open,welcoming and gregarious but it's hard to imagine in dark day gone by that the people and their spirit was crushed by the brutal Communist regime inflicted by the Soviets,between 1948-1989 this brutal and insane regime was a blight on the history of this beautiful country,this monument found on the steps leading upto Petrin Hill was unveiled 12 years after the fall of Communism,the work of sculptor Oldbram Zoubek,these harrowing figures perfectly capture the misery of this regime ,it's most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area of Ujezd.

    An interesting statue that supposedly reflects the second chapter of Kafka’s story ‘Description of a Struggle’. In that chapter Kafka jumps onto the shoulders of a new acquaintance, rides him like a horse, all the while imagining a landscape that responds to his every whim. Such an interpretation is probably only obvious to avid readers of Kafka’s books, which I myself am not.

    However, the statue is interesting to look at and is also a good point of reference to newcomers trying to find their way around the general area. It’s located next to the Spanish Synagogue.

    Our Viator tour guide knew that this was a great place for a brief rest and a history lesson. Jan Hus was a Czech martyr who died while protesting Vatican rule when the Holy Roman Empire was controlling nearly all of Europe.
    It took a Czech sculptor 13 years to complete it and it's massive and worth a visit.

    Located on Wenceslas Square is the memorial to Jan Palach ,the young student who in 1969 sacrificed his life in protest against the communist invasion of Czechoslovakia ,it's a simple and very poignant memorial and very powerful ,its relevance made all the more powerful by events currently taking place not that many miles away from Prague,if your walking along Wenceslas Square it's most definitely well worth checking out.

    A large piece of modern art of Kafka's head which divides in spinning horizontal slices and is quite mesmerising. It reassembling into the complete head every few minutes. Well worth a visit.

    It's worth visiting this to see the great views across the city and lovely surrounding park areas. The metronome itself is not very exciting!

    Nice sculpture next to Estates Theater where Mozart debut his Don Giovanni. The guide told a story (folklore, perhaps) where an individual, after a night of heavy drinking, stuck his behind into Il Commendatore's hood and was not able to extricate himself.
