We went and saw the opera Carmen and enjoyed it very much. The opera house is most beautiful and the performance just wonderful. The atmosphere and entertainment will be remembered for a very long time. We had box seats and while they were somewhat expensive I would strongly recommend them.

When I attended Riggoletto at the State Opera some 20 years ago I swore I would return to enjoy opera from one of the private boxes which seem so well suited to this Baroque venue. So, we booked Loze 26, front row seats 2 and 3 for $50 each. What a bargain compared to the price of opera tickets almost... More

We recently visited the State Opera for the third time, this time for an absolutely sublime production of La Traviata. We had excellent seats near the front of the first balcony for which we paid a fraction of what we would have done at Covent Garden, the Met etc. We were with friends who are not frequent opera goers and...

We decided to check out an opera while in Prague. It was a great decision! Seats in the second balcony for around $20 (490czk). A fun production. What a lovely building, too. A word to would be opera goers: if you are trying this to experience Prague arts and culture (and are not an opera aficionado) then the second balcony... More

What a wonderful experience. Loved the production. Luckily I can understand Italian so that was fine but the subtitles helped my partner. Really moving performance and so cheap compared with similar experiences in Paris and the UK. Everyone was so helpful as it was our first visit and we will definately go back.

We watched Aida here and really enjoyed coming to this beautiful opera house. The theatre itself is stunning and well kept. It was our first time of watching Opera and I feel it has really set a high standard. The performance was wonderful. There are subtitles... Although I believe that there must have been some 'paraphrasing' going on, but it... More

Watched Carmen yesterday. It was a beautiful theatre with great view even from the second floor. A pity that I couldnt understand the singing, so had to read the subtitle translations. I believe I would have enjoyed more if I could understand...

We stayed three nights in Prague and went 3 nights to the opera, Rusalka, La Traviata and Otello. In the latter we were spoiled by the guest star Jose Cura who performed the role of Otello. 7 years ago we stayed in town for a month and went several times and enjoyed every one of them. This time it wasn't... More

Cajoled by the wife to go to a ballet for the first time ever whilst on our anniversary in Prague. Well, if all ballet is like this then I think I have missed out. Fantastic building, inexpensive drinks and nibbles unlike rip-off England where once inside you get charged extortionately. We splashed out and got a balcony box and shared... 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.
