A beautiful theatre with very affordable tickets. We were in the very highest seats but the sound was great. Excellent singers and orchestra, but a very bizarre production, even with the English surtitles to provide some explanation. I have seen the Magic Flute before and...More

Truly magical to see The Magic Flute performed in this beautiful eighteenth century theatre by very good (if not world class) singers at a very reasonable price. Apart from a final wait for our coats everything was well organised, too, with quick bar service -...More

The venue was stunning and the show was very entertaining. People were very dressed up which I liked. It was like a real evening at the opera.

While we were traveling in Eastern Europe, we knew we would be in Prague for several days and hoped to see Mozart’s opera Don Giovani one evening. It was the experience of a lifetime, and we would do this again if we had the chance....More

You should try this, even if you've never been to an opera. We saw Don Giovanni, performed on the very stage where Mozart first presented it. Not by any means world-class performance, but superbly staged and with good singing at well below half London prices....More

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
