St. Wenceslas Riding a
Why locals love it
This is slightly a controversial piece of public art, St. Wenceslas, patron of Czech lands is riding a dead horse. Open minded Czechs like a bit of smart controvercy in art and this giant sculpture of the upside down horse with man sitting on his belly absolutely fits in the historical building of Lucerna Palace.
Why you should visit it
This horse statue will be hanging there until Czech Republic will be a constitutional monarchy again (hidden message towards behaviour and opinions of our highest representative - president). This sculpture is hanging from a dome ceiling in the middle of Lucerna passageway and it is an art work of world renowed Czech artist David Černý.
In this passageway you can also find “Paternoster”, an old, traditional doorless loop elevator dating back to the beginning of 20th century.
