It was fun. The kids loved it. The place is a little tired and the tour guide was a little grumpy but it was fun to see the behind the scenes.

We visited the Marionette Theatre on our last night and wished we'd gone earlier so that we could have seen both shows. We weren't entirely sure what to expect but it was a memorable fun-filled 45 minutes. We chose to see The Magic Flute which...More

I've never been into opera nor seen a marionette show before, but this was a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours one evening. We bought our tickets about two hours before the show started (students: show your card for a discounted rate of...More

Watched a marionette version of the famous Mozart opera, which premiered in Prague several years ago. We read up on the story so we would know what was going on. The production was fantastic: funny, entertaining, and well thought-out (especially the Mozart parts). The puppeteers...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
