The National Theatre in Prague is where to come if you want to see opera, theater, or ballet performances. The theatre building, constructed in 1883, presents spectacular exterior and interior decoration, richly decked with gold.
You can visit the building and admire the architecture for free. You can also join a guided tour of the building hosted by Prague City Tourism. Tours are offered to individuals on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 am to 11 am.
Shows prices vary depending on the company and show. In general, tickets are cheap compared to shows at the same level in the US and other large cities around the world.
Most performances have English subtitles, so you’ll be able to follow along.
