National Theater, Prague

4.6
The National Theatre (Czech: Národní divadlo) in Prague is known as the alma mater of Czech opera, and as the national monument of Czech history and art.

The National Theatre belongs to the most important Czech cultural institutions, with a rich artistic tradition, which helped to preserve and develop the most important features of the nation–the Czech language and a sense for a Czech musical and dramatic way of thinking.

Today the National Theatre consists of three artistic ensembles: opera, ballet and drama. They alternate in their performances in the historic building of the National Theatre, in the Theatre of the Estates and in the Kolowrat Theatre. All three artistic ensembles select their repertoire both from classical heritage, and modern authors.

  • Excellent piece of architecture. Plenty of space for spectators and one of biggest stages in this part of Europe. Great acoustics and visibility. The small deficiency is lack of space in front of the main entrance as it goes directly to the Národní Třída. It is truly a place where you can immerse yourself in the magic world of Art.
  • The must and want to see landmark of Prague. Beautiful building in the old town, near the river On special occasions there let visitors to attend the rooftop, if you can do not miss. And if you have more time, go and get the tickets. Either for ballet or opera. Most of the plays have even an English subtitles
