PRAGUE CULTURE - CULTURE IN PRAGUE

Prague CultureFor a bit of Prague Culture you could try some of the following things. Prague has several major opera houses and concert halls. It is home to the world famous Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and the Czech Symphony Orchestra, etc. So why not treat yourself to a bit of Prague culture by checking out the Statni Opera Praha, the Prague State Opera on Wilsonova 4, has a continuous programme of Opera and Ballet. It is just a step away from the National Museum at the top of Wenceslas Square.

Prague CulturePlan your trip ahead, check out the schedules and programmes for the Prague State Opera, the Estates Theatre, the National Theatre, etc. Pick what you’d like to see and book your tickets online. Of course, if you forget to do this, as we did, don’t despair. We went to the Statni Opera Praha for a bit of Culture, Prague's main Opera House, on the day of the performance and though the more expensive seats were fully booked, we were able to buy tickets in the high up balcony for 150 Czech Krowns or less than €6!

This was for a beautiful production of Dama s Kameliemi, The Lady of the Camelias, (La Dame aux Camelias) Ballet, in other words, a Ballet based on Verdi’s La Traviata. It was glorious, and although you’d want to have a head for heights, we had an excellent view of the stage and were able to appreciate the glorious interior of the Opera House. We were also made to feel like Royalty as the Attendants took our Cloaks, sorry anoraks, and ushered us to our seats.

 

Prague Culture - Beer?Prague Beer is also a famous Culture experience when visiting the city – there is a wide variety of excellent local beers and everyone enjoys the price which are very reasonable compared to other large European cities. Here, they know their beers - the first lager brewed was Urquell while Czech Budweis is a purer, stronger version of the American light lager.
