Excellent piece of architecture. Plenty of space for spectators and one of biggest stages in this part of Europe. Great acoustics and visibility. The small deficiency is lack of space in front of the main entrance as it goes directly to the Národní Třída. It is truly a place where you can immerse yourself in the magic world of Art.
The must and want to see landmark of Prague. Beautiful building in the old town, near the river On special occasions there let visitors to attend the rooftop, if you can do not miss. And if you have more time, go and get the tickets. Either for ballet or opera. Most of the plays have even an English subtitles
