NATIONAL THEATRE

Neo-Renaissance building overlooking the Vltava River designed by architect J. Zítek and built from the proceeds of public collection. The building was gutted by fire just before opening but rebuilt in record-breaking time of two years according to the Josef Schulz's original plans. Czech artists of the period contributed to the exte­rior and interior decorations of "the Golden Chapel" which became the pride of the Czech nation.

ESTATES THEATRE

The oldest theatre in Prague, where Mozart's opera Don Giovanni had its first performance on 29 October 1787. Simultaneous English language translations (headphones) provided at dramatic performances. Opera and ballet too.

LATERNA MAGIKA

One of the main attractions at the World Exhibitions in Brussels and Montreal. The show is based on the use of several artistic media: theatre, music, live artists and film.
