Watched a marionette version of the famous Mozart opera, which premiered in Prague several years ago. We read up on the story so we would know what was going on. The production was fantastic: funny, entertaining, and well thought-out (especially the Mozart parts). The puppeteers...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
