Tours of the historical building of the National Theatre
we would like to offer you the opportunity to visit the historic building of the National Theater.
You can choose from a rich offer of dates (12th & 19th & 28th September and 17th, 18th & 25th October)
The Neo-Renaissance building by architect Josef Zítek belongs among the most important constructions in the country, not only in terms of national culture and history but also due to its architectural design.
In addition to the auditorium and stage, the regal interior also includes several assembly halls, lounges, a foyer or a terrace where you can admire the works of Bohuslav Schnirch, Mikoláš Aleš, František Ženíšek, Josef Václav Myslbek, Václav Brožík, Josef Tulka, and Julius Mařák. The land plot of the former salt warehouse purchased for the construction of the building bestowed the theatre a unique location on the Vltava riverbank, facing the panorama of Hradčany.
The tour will lead you throughout the individual floors of the theatre. We will visit the foundation stones in the underground, the ground floor with the auditorium, both foyers with works of art, as well as the highest place a visitor to the National Theatre can see - the terrace with trigae providing a view of Petřín Hill and Prague Castle.
