This is found at the very top of Wenceslas Square in Prague. Due to major construction on the National Museum it is turned off as the construction program is due to complete in November 2018. The statue of King Wenceslas is still available nearby.

It was being remodeled when I was there. But it's probably a good thing, it had a dirty appearance, I hope they can make it look better.

shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
