An equestrian statue of Saint Wenceslaus and other patrons of Bohemia 

An equestrian statue of Saint Wenceslaus and other patrons of Bohemia (St. Adalbert, St. Ludmila, St. Prokop and St. Agnes of Bohemia) is located on Wenceslaus Square inPrague. The statue is a popular meeting place in Prague. Demonstrations against the Communist regime were held there.

His helmet and armour are on display inside Prague Castle.

The 1994 television film, Good King Wenceslas, is a highly fictional account of his early life. The film stars Jonathan Brandis in the title role, supported by Leo McKern,Stefanie Powers, and Joan Fontaine as Ludmila.

A 1987 BBC radio play byAlick Rowe, Crisp and Even Brightly, starring Timothy Westas Wenceslas, is a comic re-telling of the story of the carol, involving a page called Mark and spies seeking the downfall of the King.
