Good! I was here today, tickets was bought in the last minute, because we were walking near. The Theatre building just wonderful! From the inside and outside. I was sitting and looking at the beautiful freskas, sculpures, decorations. Play was very good, maybe I would prefer different one, but this play was only in this evening, so I had no... More

Booked up to see La Traviata before we came out from the UK...what a superb experience. The theatre itself is spotlessly clean and beautifully ornate and decorated. Seats and view were top notch and the seat prices themselves very reasonable at about £25 each. Interval drinks were cheap at about £1.50 for a glass of wine. A far better, and... More

We passed by hoping to see something... nothing. Might be very impressing from the inside (it was closed when we visited) but from the outside... nothing to write home about.

For the price of a ticket you would not get anything close to this quality in the US! We saw the ballet Karbat, it was my husbands first ballet experience and he enjoyed it! The Theater is beautiful and the ballet company was very talented. Worth an evening of you time for sure. We booked a box on the second... More

This is a beautiful building just beside the Vlatva River. We unfortunately did not have much time to attend a show but the building itself is a must visit.

Lovely performance in a beautiful theater. For a tourist, the prices are low, so don't hesitate to book long in advance on-line, today it looked like the place was full. Opposite the theater you can have a lovely meal at the Kavarna Slavia cafe. A perfect night at the opera.

I love this theater and have always loved it when growing up in Prague, just across the Vltava river. I attended many performances years before it was closed for restoration in 1977. it was reopened after 6 years and it is even more beautiful and ornate inside. Over the years returning to Prague we have seen many performances here, and... More

On our trip to Prague, my wife had booked tickets in advance for La Traviata at the National Theater. What a beautiful gem of a building is this structure. Our experience was effortless for coat check, refreshments, and seating is good anywhere in the theater. The acoustics, of course, are perfect and the beauty of this old and famous performance...

La Traviata was playing in the main building (there seem to be a few stages in the adjacent building possibly?) and the only tickets available were way up in the gods, but amounted to about £4 or €6 each! We figured that even with possibly restricted views, it would be well worth the visit. The seats up there do have... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless 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 or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
