A series of concrete roadblocks will be installed at náměstí Republiky and Wenceslas Square in an effort to prevent terrorist attacks. Police recommended the preventative measure following attacks in Europe this year in which attackers used vehicles as weapons.

Concrete barricades are permanently in place on Old Town Square. In the upcoming month, the square will be hosting an Easter market that will attract large congregations of people, tourists and locals alike.

The black and yellow striped barriers have been widely criticized for their unappealing appearance, which is not in keeping with the picturesque and historical square. Others have been questioning the effectiveness of the roadblocks against the force of large vehicles coming at high speed.
