"National Theatre" National Theatre Tip by Raimix

National Theatre, Prague: 40 reviews and 72 photos


National theatre building had a sad history. It was constructed for a long time, from 1868 till 1881 in neo ? Renaissance style. It was working not for so long, as in the same year fire badly damaged building, and it needed quick reconstruction. Money was gathered in the way of public donation and in 1883 it started working again. Famous Czech composer?s Smetana opera ?Libuse? was the first to be performed in National theatre.

Architect of this building was Josef Schulz, he mixed three buildings to create one. I recommend gazing at National theatre from nearby Vltava bridge, especially at dark time.

Address: Narodni divadlo.
