We didn't really know what to expect while entering Prague Puppet Theater that night in August. We are huge fans of puppet shows and already experienced many of them before going to this one so we usually have a critical vision of the show we...More

We went to see their show of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni. The puppet's themselves are amazingly crafted and their operators are highly skilled. Don't expect a night of opera but rather a good, quirkly and funny puppet show. The show is a bit long but...More

An enjoyable evening. Opera cleverly produced by the marionettes, with humor, but it is essential to read up and know the story beforehand, as it is all in Italian with no captions in English. Also note the seats are hard, wooden seats so could be...More

It was unbelievable that there was no fan or air-con in such a large theater! Quite many audience could not endure the hotness and decided to leave during the break. The story of the opera was boring and the performers were not professional, I really...More

I read a review from 2011 that said this was a "Child friendly fun place". Perhaps it was then, but in 2015 it is not. The show had frontal nudity. Pictures of naked women were prominently displayed on stage during one act of the play....More

The Don Giovani Marionette theatre performance in Prague was one of the most innovative and creative productions imaginable. Mr Mozart was an absolute hysterical take off. He positively stole the show right out from under the feet of the Don himself. Mozart of course conducted...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
