Create an itinerary including National Theater
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.

  • Great place, very beautiful exterior and interior. The performances are always top. Definitely recommend to visit both balconies (including the top one) during the break for amazing views.
  • What an amazing place! We are here to see beauty and the beast and we are very excited. People are dressed for the occasion which iou might also want to be. You can buy drinks and small snacks inside the entrance.
