  • Nice monument to a beloved figure...Tomas Garrique Masaryk, the former president of Czechoslovakia. The monument is relatively easy to get to. There is also a great view of Prague near the monument.  more »
  • The statue of the first Czech President, in front of the entrance of the Castle, as well as to commemorate the statesman mentions how Garrique wished to add to his surname also that of his wife, Masaryk, as a sign of devotion and equality . To see!

  • Ironically, on the steps overlooking the Matthias Gate is a monument to Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the founder of the Czechoslovakia republic after the abolishment of monarchy in the Austrian-Hungary empire. A symbol of democracy steps away from the symbol of an empire. I wonder if the monument has been placed exactly on the spot looking on the Castle for a reason. Before you head in the Castle, take a moment on the square and enjoy the view overlooking the city. This is one of the many beautiful vantage points in the Hradčany District but can be the most busy during peak summer months. I was lucky enough to arrived in the evening when the space is far quieter.
  • A noble statue of a great but modest man. Masaryk essentially founded Czechoslovakia at the end of WWI from some remains of the Habsburg Empire. He was the first president of Czechoslovakia, which was a successful democracy in the difficult period between the wars, when so many other democracies succumbed to fascism. Frequently you will find that someone has left fresh flowers at the foot of the statue.
  • I went here for sightseeing the other day, it was an unbearably hot day, but a truck came and squirted cold water on us. It was enjoyable.
  • this is one of my favourite spots in prague - great views of the entrance to the prague castle, great views of the city and petrin hill and a great feeling of history. definitely worth visiting.
  • I love these statues, someone wants to kill someone, the square is beautiful you can see all of Prague from here
