Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Breathtaking!
Mar 2020
Having never experienced Opera before, my husband and I decided to give it a try on our recent visit. We couldn't believe how easy it was to choose tickets on line and how reasonable the prices were. We decided that even if the Opera did not appeal, it was well worth the money to have the opportunity to see inside this beautifully renovated building. We were not disappointed on both counts - Fidalio was good and the building is stunning. We felt like royalty sitting in a box! There was also no problem with understanding as there were subtitles at the top of the stage. Another point to note, although many people did dress for the occasion, smart casual was fine too.

The place to enjoy
Feb 2020
The opera house was closed for several years but has opened again after a thorough rejuvenation programme. Obviously the top opera house in Czech republic and the ideal place for a truly special evening out. Really high quality performances. Guests are very well dressed for the occasion, which gives it all a festive look.

Beautiful opera house
Jan 2020 • Friends
$45 for front row which I really appreciated. The singers were just ok but the orchestra were PHENOMENAL. We saw La Traviata and the overture was so clean and haunting you would have thought you and the concert master were in a soundproofed room by yourselves.
They have little screens with handbag hooks in the seats and you can follow along to the words in many languages...but you’re there to hear it in its native language so I didn’t use my screen.

Beautifully restored Opera house with all state of the art amenities. We enjoyed Donizetti's Elixir d'Amour in a fantastic and creative production. Well worth a visit!

An unforgettable and very moving experience
Oct 2019
We had the chance to hear a 'national opera' , Libuse by Bedrich Smetana, on October 28th, Independance Day. This opera is only presented twice a year, every year and is a sort of representation of the history of the Czeck Nation. If you plan to come at that time of the year don't miss the occasion. Otherwise, this splendid house is worth a visit, for its charm, its location of the banks of the Moldau River and its excellent acoustics. If attending an opera, I recommend the balcony.

As the information says the Opera is currently under renovation. All you can see is scaffolding. At the time given, I recommend you visiting the National theater instead.

Beautiful building
Feb 2019 • Solo
I had seats up in the gods, but the advantage is the roof terrace up there with fine views over Prague. Seats really cheap in comparison with some opera houses. The bathrooms were beautiful! Some historical photos on the staircases well worth looking at. The acoustic is somewhat dry and there are sweet spots on the stage, so the singers don't sound quite as full voiced as they might in Vienna or Bayreuth, but still very enjoyable.

We Went to the Opera
May 2018
We saw Turandot here and it was totally over-the-top, as was the stunning interior of the theater. Tickets were very affordable, the audience was well-dressed. A special night and memory.

Grand Building - Old Town
Aug 2018 • Couples
The State Opera House is a grand building centrally located in the Old Town and can be reached easily on public transport. It is well maintained and aesthetically pleasing. It hosts a range of performances and unfortunately we were unable to attend a concert during our brief stay.
Thanks for your vote.
