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!

We actually went to the Estate theatre to watch Mozart's Garibaldi Opera. The national museum had no shows when we were their, but the building was nice. Their is also the Praha theatre which gives concerts.

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

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

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.
