Top ways to experience Prague National Theater Opera
The area
Neighbourhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

Prague National Theatre Opera is a stunning looking Theatre building that's a must go destination if you're planning a holiday to Prague.
Opened in 1881 ,this theatre hosts ballet ,drama and especially opera productions and is world famous but just standing back from the vantage point of Legions Bridge and taking in the sheer beauty of this theatre building is so good,easy to locate along Narodni, most definitely well worth checking out.

With the snow falling my twin brother Stephen and I walked over Most Legii ( Legion Bridge ) and one of the first buildings that came into view is Prague National Theatre .
Prague National Theatre is home to the arts ,ballet ,opera and drama performed here in a theatre that opened in 1881 ,it's one of the most stunning buildings in the New Town and a landmark building that's most definitely well worth checking out if you're near Narodni.

I liked the opera building with amazing paintings very much. It worth to visit, even if there's no big play. We attended a relatively short classic music concert for an hour, and play was very nice. Although the auditorium wasn't full, spectators liked the play a lot. Recommended place to visit

Very gorgeous building and I was lucky to get a box seat on the side. So, while I don't love ballet, it was a good way to sit for a few hours and just take in the sights and sounds.

Very charming !!!
The theatre is beautiful from the outside and even more from the inside. We went to see Carmen, the opera and it was 2 hours delight !!!
Totally recommend booking in advance an opera when visiting Prague.

Excellent experience. Booked tickets on line before we went. Got seats right up top at the back, lots of room, comfortable and sound was superb. Saw La Traviata - great performance although set was a bit bland. They say dress up, although we didn’t - wasn’t an issue.....stunning building

If you are thinking Opera during your Prague visit, you'll want to read this first! Tickets can be purchased online- so I recommend 2 options. 1. If you have a set itinerary, try purchasing the tickets before your arrival to Prague so that you can print out the ticket OR 2. wait until you arrive in Prague so you can best fit the day you would like to go- have your hotel print them for you, we emailed our concierge who then printed our tickets. Do not be afraid that you won't understand the performance because a lot of the shows have substittles for the audience displayed above the stage. Plan to eat before or after... Parnas Restaurant is where we ate and at 4:30 pm seated we had the restaurant to ourselves. 6:45 pm we walked 3 min to the theater for the 7 pm showing. Then, after the show we ate some great street food and had a beer. Many people walked into the restaurant and reserved a late dinner table at 9-10pm for an after the show dinner. I wore a simple black dress with wedged pointed heels for easy walking, my friend was more brave and wore stilettos but carried foldable flats since we walked to the theater from our hotel.

Booked seats before leaving for Prague and 2 seats in the 2nd Gallery were £28.00. Seats are small - we were in the 2nd row (front row is very tight on leg room and high up) however the view of the stage and orchestra was great. Also arrive early and look around the theatre - a lady who took our coats advised us to go up the stairs onto the outside balcony of the theatre for wonderful views over Prague. The main reason of our visit was to look at the wonderful building but the production and music was wonderful and Violetta was fantastic. People watching was also fascinating and it was delightful to see all ages dressed up - many in long evening dress and gents in dinner suits. Well worth a visit if you can.
