Hybernia Theatre and its location have a rich history. In the 14th century, the emperor Charles IV built the St. Ambrosius monastery here which gradually fell under different orders, the Benedictines, Minorites, and finally in the 17th century the Irish Franciscans.
In late-18th century the monastery was shut down on the order of Emperor Joseph II and the church was deconsecrated. Still, the place was called „U Hybernů“ (Hybernia means Ireland in latin). The former church served as a customs house, exhibition hall. In 2006 its interior was transformed into a modern theatre hosting mainly musicals, but also ballet, opera performances and jazz concerts.
As of 2019, the decoration of the theatre is very simple. There is a nice bar at the entrance and a little cloakroom on side.
Atmosphere was in the roof level, regrettably the presentation was a poor one. However, we heard the beautiful song to the moon and then we had to leave.
