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.

  • 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 🤩
  • 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.
