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.

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.

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

If you are short of time the plane is a very convenient way as quick flight. Plenty of flights available. Least expensive is bus.
