Barrier-free acces

It is recommended that a visit to the theatre by a person with impaired movement be announced in advance when purchasing a ticket. 

Description of barrier-free acces...


Box No. 8 in the parterre is allocated for persons with reduced mobility. It is recommended that you notify the staff that a disabled person will be attending a performance when you purchase a ticket.

Access to the theatre 

The barrier-free entrance to the theatre building is round the corner on the right-hand side from the main entrance (from Masarykovo nábřeží). The entrance is marked with a wheel-chair symbol and there is a buzzer on the wall on the right in front of the door for calling an attendant. So as to accelerate access to the performance, we recommend arranging the entry in advance. 
The ground floor of the theatre is accessed by a staircase service platform (loading capacity: 225 kg, width of the transportation area: 78 cm, depth: 125 cm). The allocated Box No. 8 is on the right side of the parterre (the door passage: 77 cm).


Four parking spaces are earmarked on the entrance floor of the National Theatre underground garage.
