The theatre on one side and the Slavia café on the other end Narodni Street at the Vltava River and the Legion Bridge. The first, a huge neo-Renaissance vessel, is a manifesto of Czech nationalism at the end of the 20th century (built from 1863 to 1881). Josef Zítek, a professor at the technical college and architect, is in charge of the project. Built thanks to a popular subscription, it had a dramatic start as it was partially destroyed by fire only nine days after the inauguration. Fortunately, we were able to rebuild it on the same subscription! Like that of the Municipal House, the interior decoration of the national theatre was designed by all the great names of the time: Tulka, Aleš and Hynažs, decorator of the stage curtain. Thanks to its modernity and quality equipment, the theatre remained intact for nearly a hundred years, until 1977. It then closed its doors until 1983 for renovation work on the building and its immediate surroundings, including the Legion Bridge (most Légií), which extends Národní, built to facilitate access to the National Theatre. The centenary was celebrated on 18 November 1983 with a performance of Libuše de Smetana. Opened in 1884, the large Slavia café just opposite has become since the opening of the theatre the great meeting place for Prague's intellectuals, and has preserved a sublime Art Deco interior architecture and large bay windows overlooking the Vltava and the castle.

Un bel écrin pour de très beaux spectacles
Il est possible de trouver des places en dernière minute à des prix très raisonnables et avec une visibilité correcte, chose difficile pour de nombreux opéras à travers le monde.

C'est un très beau bâtiment, posé au bord de l'eau. Je n'ai malheureusement pas pu assister à une représentation.

Le théâtre national était en restauration lors de notre visite. Prenez un peu de recul et avancez sur la Vltava pour avoir une belle vue sur l'ouvrage et notamment sur sa coupole.
