Not that Prague has a lack of stunning building to take pictures in front of, but this building is particularly beautiful, with its grand stairway up front. We didn't get to go in, but took pictures in front - and was told by our Segway tour guide that this building was used in one of the Bond movies (Casino Royale??)...Worth... More

We did not see any shows, but we did manage to have a guided tour of the inside of the building. Everyone must visit this theater as it is truly stunning inside. Our guide called EVA V..was absolutely brilliant and was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was also our guide (a family party of 8) on our first day in... More

From a distance this building is reconisable with its golden roof gleaming.When i visited it there was no program & just saw its exterior & heard about it being a symbol of Czech revival in language,music & dramatic arts with good acoustics & design in the interiors.It holds fine reportoire of opera,drama & concerts.

We visited the National Theater to see Dvorak's Rusalka--Jsem si to užil moc. Not only was the opera performance excellent, the theater is a masterpiece of design and the acoustics are fabulous. Enjoy a night out for fine dining (perhaps Mlynec -- see on TA) and then take in an Opera. Perfektní!

Worth to go and enjoy every moment of good art.chose your preferable show and do not miss.easy to look for the monthly shows and better to book yourself threw intetnet or rather ask to keep tickets for you and ask for cash payment upon receipt.

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

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.
