What people are saying about Prague National Theatre

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 539 reviews

I was afraid after reading reviews online but my friend and I loved it. The seats were comfy, the show was fantastic, and it was affordable. It was a great night to spend in Prague. I will say that the instructions could be better communicated and I didn’t like that I couldn’t initially pick my seat or even knew where I would be sitting until later but these are my preferences and had nothing to do with the quality of the show. Many reviewer online stated that this is no better then a high school play, how dare they. There were times when certain turns or steps were out of sync but to say that this show is low quality is disrespectful.

This tour was so much fun! Rene our guide was a real well of knowledge, he captured our attention with facts and interesting stories, and he did his best for us to feel safe and entertained. Driving around on electric bicycles and segways was a perfect way to learn about Prague and to see as much as possible.

Simply wonderful! As my first time in the theater, I will definitely be back! MB

Awesome show. Seating prices should be the same if audience can sit anywhere.

Fabulous guide who was knowledgeable and explained everything clearly
