National Theatre - Review

The National Theatre is commonly known as the Czech Republic's representative stage. It is built with funds from all over the country with nationwide collections and was first opened in the year 1881. It was also re-opened for the second time in 1883 after it shut because of a devastating fire. The interior decoration as well as the magnificent exterior is worth dying for. The interior is beautifully embellished with gold and consists of masterpieces of 19th century Czech painters - Ales, Zenisek, Hynais, Myslbek, and a couple of other famous names. Visit ballet, opera and drama performances together with beautiful spaces for an unforgettable theater experience.

National Theatre, Prague Reviews

  • National theater is very beautiful place. I love the fact that mostly the theater is made out of gold inside. The services as the catering and others are on really high level. The performances in National theater are all great. No matter which play you choose, they are all spectacular. And even though you are not fan of theaters and you don’t like to watch the play, you can always admire the beauty of the architecture and design. That’s why I rate it with 5 stars.

  • Well, it's National theater. 😊 Even toilets are superb. It's just a great experience and you only see professionals in the field here. Personally, I don't recommend second row of private lounges as the viewing angle is limited and also you have people in front of you, who usually forget that people are also behind them. 😊 Last rows of lounges are actually better, however lounges don't offer very comfortable seating in general. Most recently we visited dance performance Chvění, where some main action took place in the rear corners of the stage, which are invisible from the lounges. That's about the only thing to be improved.. 😊

  • The new building has a distinct 70's vibe with its wooden installations intertwined with ore elements and fluorescent lights. The one show we got the chance to see was spectacular. You can sit in the café and watch people go by their business through the street facing windows.

  • Very beautiful and well kept inside. My only complaint is the leg room between the seats. My husband's and I are y'all and it was a little uncomfortable with our knees cramming into the wall. That aside, the interior was beautiful and the ballet we saw was very entertaining.

  • The National Theatre at Prague. Most lovely stories behind. Amazing theater inside. Nice quiet place beside it at the Václav Havel Square. Don't miss this spot at Prague.
