We took a private tour of the Estates Theatre/Opera House. It is a beautiful venue. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

In the past years we were very lucky having different performances in this theater. Of course we had Don Giovanni too - and it was a good feeling that we are sitti9ng there where it was first performed. Go if you can.

It was great to see Don Giovanni in the theatre where Mozart did play it for the first time! The Estates Theatre is an historican building, lovely decorated in classic style from the 17th century. It was a true pleasure to visit the theatre.

This theatre is where Mozart's premiere of Don Giovanni occurred. The opera is still performed there. We had a wonderful lecture and tour with Road Scholar. Very beautifully decorated.

It's said that a number of Mozart's works had their premiere here at The Estates Theatre and you would certainly believe it when you see this splendid eighteenth-century theatre with its ivory columns topped with gold. And inside, it's just as lovely. Perched on one...More

Performance of the cast and orchestra were brilliantly and the theatre was beautiful. Sadly the operations and the staff were terrible. As someone's who attends the opera regularly i was shocked by the maltreatment and rudeness we received. The tickets I bought online said the...More

Two nights ago, I (almost) saw but certainly experienced Mozart's singspiel "Die Zauberfloete" at the Estates Theatre. Why almost? The 18th-century construction of theatre loge boxes mean that only 2 of the 3 seats in the side loges give a view of the stage. I...More

What an amazing theatre. This place has to be seen to be believed. We booked tickets for Marriage of Figaro months in advance, knew the history of the theatre and links to Mozart but stepping into our box and looking out into the auditorium was...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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
