Built and rebuilt with money from the public mass, this building has stood as a cultural epicenter for the Czech Republic since 1883, currently hosting Opera, Drama, and Ballet performances. Pass through the doors, and you’ll be met with gold-embellished walls that bear masterpieces by 19th-century Czech painters like Aleš, Ženišek, Hynais, Myslbek, and others.

Nearly every renowned Czech composer, conductor, dancer, playwright, singer, and musician have performed in the halls of the National Theatre and gathered in the famous Café Slavia across the street afterwards.
