Národní 2, Praha 1
The Prague National Theatre was built from the desire of the Czech people for national independence. Its building was financed from the collections on which participated broad masses of people as well as important donators (including the nobility and the emperor himself). The theatre foundation ceremonial on 16th May 1868 became a national celebration.
The theatre was opened in 1881. In the same year the theatre burned down, and this tragic event caused a huge wave of new collections to support the restoration of the theatre. The Prague National Theatre was re-opened in 1883 by the opera Libuše by Bedřich Smetana and since then it has been serving as a place of Czech national identity and as a flagship of the Czech culture to these days.
Must be the must visit venue in Prague. Venue staff are very friendly & the small and plentiful bars are good value.
Beautiful but not very comfortable.
The National Theatre is a beautiful venue. However, do not sit in a box. You will not be able to see the entire stage. The seats are uncomfortable and there is not enough space for four people. The regular seating on the main floor or the first balcony is fine.
Beautiful buidling, great accoustics
Attention, les tchèques prennent au sérieux un spectacle à l'opéra: tenue correcte exigée!
The auditorium was extremely good.
What was terrible were the toilets. We sat in the stalls and used the toilets to the sides. The smell was awful. Stale urine causes that smell and can be got rid of by a thorough clean.
Beautiful theater with comfortable seats (i.e. leg room)
Impressive, sumptuous theatre.
Everyone who visits Prague should book a concert at the Imperial Theatre for the wonderful experience. I would highly recommend it.
As above noted an excellent and OST impressive venue.
Magnifique Théâtre National qui, à lui seul, mérite la visite.
I found the seats a little uncomfortable, too hard. Otherwise everything was fine.
The theater is wonderful. Missed a lift to the galeries.
Unfortunately there was an issue with my reservation. When I went to the box office to change my voucher, was told the reservation was for December. However, after showing the email with the confirmation, a lovely lady explained me it was a technical question and offer me another seat in the same row.
Not the best application to buy tickets, but great customer service.
The theatre is a lovely building, it was the 'star' of the evening and made our visit to the opera feel even more special. The bufets (bars) on each level was very convenient and reduced the stress of ensuring you were back in your seat for the next act after enjoying refreshments. The staff were friendly and performance itself was very good. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to others - a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Beautiful venue, very helpful staff.
The theater is so beautiful, you are transported to another century.
Het was een mooi gebouw, goed bereikbaar en heel mooi van binnen en buiten. Je kon voor de voorstelling naar het terras om foto's te maken van het uitzicht. Het enige minpunt is dat op het balkon niet genoeg beenruimte is voor wat langere mensen. (Ik ben 1,81) Dus je zit heel krap en moet wijtbeens zitten.
Stunning beauty of a building. The temperature was kept VERY warm. jThe refreshment stands were well located as were the WCs.
The venue was plush and a lovely space to be in.
One of the most glorious theatre spaces in Europe. A must-see.
The Prague National Theatre was almost worth the cost if admission on its own! A real gem of a building. Gold leaf and carvings everywhere with an enormous chandelier to set it all off. Visually stunning. Although the better seats had gone by the time we booked and we could not see part of the stage this did not really spoil our enjoyment. The ticket price was very low given the costs that staging such a production must involve. Drink prices and the programme were also very reasonable. In Britain one feels exploited by programmes and drinks costing almost as much as the ticket prices.
One suggestion is that when tickets are collected from the box office in the new building people are told where to go. It took us a few minutes to realise she we had to go next door.
Le Théâtre National c'est un lieu magnifique.
This is a good example that a good opera should be performed in a beautiful theater. The imposing and stately atmosphere of this historical building is essential.
Les toilettes hommes ne sont pas indiquées
Easy to get tickets, comfortable seats, in a great opera house. Very good refreshment facilities.
Magnifique, très bien organisée, très bien entretenue, un petit bijou avec une acoustique irréprochable.
Theatre is lovely and staff were very helpful. Venue could be improved by more toilets as there are long queues during the intermission.
A grandiose, elegant building with very good acoustics. A joy.
The National Theater is overwhelming! The most beautiful theater I have ever seen!!
Le lieu est superbe
Très belle salle et bonne acoustique.
Une salle un peu ancienne, fastueuse mais très chaleureuse grâce à ses dimensions assez modestes permettant de toute part une bonne visibilité de la scène. Belle cohésion du public pourtant très mixte. Très bonne acoustique.
The theatre was beautiful and worth the visit alone.
Très beau ballet parfaitement danse drôle et dans un lieu magique de Prague
Gorgeous and Excquisite.
Very centrally located, timing and intervals well set to allow to enjoy a light supper without rushing after the fall of the curtain. Enjoy the balcony view on Vlatva to refresh attention and take a breeze glass in hand.
Facile d’accès en transport
The National Theater is a beautiful and historic venue.
We enjoyed experiencing the great opera venue in Prague.
Très surprises par la beauté du bâtiment, vraiment magnifique et plein de charme.
Fantastic venue, and although we were clearly underdressed ( being tourists for few days) , we were made to feel welcome. Beautiful surroundings, perfect acoustics and helpful customer service.
Stunning venue, not much room between the rows of seats though.
One of the great world venues
The venue is historic and the seats in the box were fantastic, despite a slightly limited view; similar to many seats in the National Theatre. Thank you
Beautiful building. However, a bit more leg room would have been great.
