Even Prague is a lively city on Sundays, we can also recommend an opera like Turandot on Sunday afternoon. The theatre is very nice and the productions are excellent with English subtitles for a very good price (1st category around 25 EUR).

Finally I saw this oper and it's in Prague... It's not very big but it's always beautiful to go in these kind of places. Well played, nice staff.

The theatre is grand and impressive as you expect a theatre from that period to be (built in 1888). We went to see La Traviata, which we enjoyed. The voices were magnificent and even though we were seated in second balcony, the acoustic carried the music and voices very well. The decor in the three acts was bare. A sofa,... More

We went to enjoy this magnificent Verdi's opera Rigolletto on April 17. If you are an Opera fan please visit this amazing theater, and if your not try to visit anyway on a day tour. An impressive sound and well manage light system. Enjoy this place, it's magical, it's gorgeous and it's worth your visit. Until my next review.

This was a magic experience. The opera house has the grand exterior of a turn-of-century ornate building, although surrounded by car parks and expressways. Inside, however, it is a vast confection in gold leaf with plush seating and ornate lights. Makes London's ROH look quite ordinary. We attended the first night of a new production of Hansel and Gretel (by... More

After many years living in Prague and having attended classical and popular concerts at other venues we recently attended the State Opera for the first time, where we saw Carmen. All-in-all a very good experience. We paid extra for box seats and consider it money well spent: we had a great view and relatively comfortable seats. The theatre is stunning.... More

We had never been to the opera before, but it was something on out "bucket list", so what better place to see it than the State Opera in Prague. The lady at the ticket office was lovely and helpful, we booked seats in a box for approx £20/25 each to see Aida. It was a box for 3 but we... More

Brilliant place to visit for a good show and is easy to get to. I would recommend pre ordering your drinks for the break as you get a table reserved for you as there is only a few and the toilets are totally unsuitable for the amount of people visiting and you have to queue for a long time.

And this is end of the story. It should e open to the public and artists should convert to waiting staff and ticket sellers. We paid a lot to hear, that no one can sing. Be aware.

We were in Prague for a few days and hadn't planned to see the Opera but we ended up with some tickets on the suggestion of my sister in law. We saw Carmen. Wow! Wow! Wow! These people can sing and I love the English subtitles. Now I am no expert on Opera but what I can tell you is... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
