We attended an opera here and it's a lovely classic opera house, good sight lines and good sound. Did not feel big at all. Impressive.

Be careful of anything off of the main floor if your back is not without issues. Even the main floor looked cramped. Great production was kind of lost in the brutal experience of sitting for two hours without legroom of any kind.

This is a beautiful opera house and one could picture Mozart there conducting the Marraige of Figaro -- which is what I saw. Unfortunately, the staff were either very courteous or downright surly. One usher did not smile at anyone that I could see the...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

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
