National Theatre

Prague, Czech Republic
4.8 / 75
The main theater of Prague, which is considered one of the symbols of the national revival of the Czech people. It was erected at the people's expense, since the Austro-Hungarian government did not allocate money. The opening took place in 1881, but soon the theater burned down and reopened in 1883. The building adorns the Vltava embankment and is not inferior in beauty even to the famous Vienna Opera. The interior is made with grace and luxury.
Address:Národní 2, Nové Město, Praha 1

Wonderful intimate house, lavish in decoration, great sightlines and acoustics, and comfortable seats too. The company is very strong and the orchestra has the characterful wind playing you only get here.

This is a cool theatre with a retro look straight from the eighties. Nice venues for kids as well with a cosy foie to chill before and after the show. Conveniently located in the center it s a must if you are visiting Prague.

Haven't managed to get inside this theatre as much as I wanted to. It's soo lovely from the outside as well. If you are in prague and wish to attend an opera or a concert there, I think it's better to book in advance and plan your trip.. Read more »

I went to see the ballet version Cinderella here. The building itself is beautiful with noteworthy statues on the roof terrace. Inside, the seats are set at a very steep incline so that even our very high up seats had a perfect view of the stage. I h.. Read more »

It is just very, very beautiful and grandiose. Attended Bizet's Carmen, which was really spectacular. English and Czech translations are shown above the stage. Nice view from the outside balcony. Overall great experience.
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 an.. Read more »

One of the utmost symbols of czech culture and arts! This building alone is enough for me to be proud to be living here. Check their website for concerts or plays. Most performances have English subtitles…

Amazing place with history. Unfortunately the production we visited (bpm) was not good S expected and didn’t match the reputation of the National theatre but overall very pleasant evening. The views from the terrace is breathtaking ?
Oliver Wild
Beautiful building and great performance. Stage technique is not the most modern but was used very efficiently to create an enjoyable opera experience. Singers and orchestra performed well. Tickets are quite affordable.

The building looks impressive on the outside. On the inside too. I saw some beautiful oil paintings in the foyer. The auditorium is beautifully decorated with strong nationalist themes. It it obvious that the nation once suffered. I watched the opera.. Read more »

Interior is nice, and the prices are very very cheap, though one can see why, as the costume design is lacking. We saw Rusalka, which a story I adore, but I was struggling so much not falling asleep. It's nice that they have also English subtitl.. Read more »

The gorgeous and lavish detail of this building is absolutely stunning. We sat in a box seat and enjoyed watching the orchestra play. On the second floor balcony you can reserve a seat and pre-order drinks for the intermission.
