National Theatre

Local nameNárodní divadlo
LocationNew Town, Prague, Czechia

Only one month after its first opening in 1881, the theatre was destroyed by fire. The renovations were financed from national collections and as soon as in 1883, the theatre opened again, with Smetana's opera Libuše.

Now the main stage of Czech cultural life, National Theatre offers elite cast and well-prepared performances. Opera, ballet or drama, the choice is up to you.

Even if you are not planning to go inside, the building is worth stopping by for its exquisite architecture. It is especially beautiful at night when it is illuminated. Seeing it from a boat on the Vltava river is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
