We loved the show. If you want to see it, I've got two hints for you: (1) read the story line in advance on Wikipedia (in detail), it helps to keep up with the show and understand the humour, (2) get there about 30 minutes...More

We went to see an opera done with puppets. Very original and i like the sense of humor, even if children would love it even more. 1.40 hour was a bit long and a 1 hour show would be more ideal before diner.

I am not a huge fan of puppets but I do expect a more professional performance. The storyline itself is unfit for kids. I see lots of kids are too boring to move around or chatting. Some parents felt asleep during the performance. The puppets...More

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.

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

I went to see Mozart's Don Giovanni at this theatre. Didn't know what to expect really. I'm not a big opera fan but do love theatre so was open to whatever. I loved it! The opera is recorded and one watches marionettes of the characters....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
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
