Lucerna Passage

This extensive, somewhat gloomy, Art Nouveau labyrinth under Lucerna Palace from 1920 is bordered by Wenceslas Square, Stepanska, V Jame and Vodickova. There are numerous shops, restaurants and a music club, as well as an upside-down copy of the famous St Wenceslas statue, by artist David Cerny, dangling outside Lucerna cinema. The Grandfather of former president Vaclav Havel, whose family still owns part of the palace, designed the Lucerna arcade. Recommended places to visit are Lucerna Bar and Cinema.

In Czech: Pasáž Lucerna
