I visited the National Theater (Narodni Divadlo) on Saturday. We enjoyed Madama Butterfly and we really did! Hearing the soprano was simply delighful. Tickets were cheap (if we compare to my country, Spain). I strongly recommed to buy them online, since you can choose the seat. It simple and fast. Inside the theater, it is also possible to buy some... More

We saw Rusalka here, and it was fantastic. However, we did not realize that there are theatres scattered all around Prague as part of this group. So, we went to one building and the performance was actually in a different one across town. We barely made it in time for the performance! I would recommend going, but check your tickets... More

I felt that seeing an Opera while in Prague was a must do, and I wasn't wrong. The tickets are actually quite cheap and it's offers a cultural and sophisticated evening activity. As an opera novice, it was a bit hard to follow, but the orchestra, performers, and visuals were excellent. Plus the theater itself is beautiful and with the... More

We went to see Rusalka by Dvorak at the national opera last night. Beautiful setting, excellent production and the orchestra was excellent. My only issue is with the seating. We had a box on the second level (Box 10) and with exception of the seat closest to the stage, no one could see a thing....genuinely! Luckily they have surtitles otherwise... More

It is a beautiful building! Photographed near apartments. Enjoy the view every day! It is a pity that it is not able to go inside. I make it sure next time!

We were going to Prague with our 5&9 y/o children, i looked up the prices and decided it was a no brainer, about 100 dollars for all of us in our own box, what a fabulous first opera experience! The National Theater is gorgeous inside and out. The theater was actually smaller inside than I expected so I think most... More

We went to see a performance of the Nutcracker and the Cuddly Mouse. I didn't do my homework properly, simply booked this because I love the Nutcracker and wanted to see something in the beautiful Prague National Theater. However, this adaptation of the Nutcracker is really aimed at kids (as was evident from the number of kids in the audience)... More

Not opera goers but our family of four got to experience International level opera in our own box for under £100 in total, one ticket at home would cost more than that. Amazing value - the drinks and snacks were far cheaper than you'd pay in a UK cinema! We saw Janeck's Cunning Little Vixen a, shorter than average, rather... More

We were lucky enough to attend a performance of the Nutcracker and the Cuddly Mouse over the holiday season. The ballet was amazing. A different interpretation of the classic story. The theater itself is stunning. A great night with our family. If you can, slip out to the rooftop during intermission for a fantastic view of the city at night.

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.
