National Theatre (Národní divadlo)
Before 1848, it was not Czech, but German. However, the Czechs wanted to have a theatre that performed in their mother tongue, so they organized a collection called “The Nation to Itself,” and built this beautiful theatre with a gold ornament on the roof. It is located at the end of Národní třída on the banks of the Vltava River. Try the Magician’s Lantern (Laterna magika) on the New Stage (Nová scéna)! This is a performance without words that uses only art – our common language.
National Gallery (Národní galerie)
The gallery includes several buildings and numerous types of exhibitions. In Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí), you can visit Kinský Palace (Palác Kinských) where you will find art styles such as Impressionism. The nearby Convent of Saint Agnes (Klášter sv. Anežky) is a place for medieval art and is also itself a captivating ancient and well-preserved space.
Jára Cimrman Theater in Žižkov (Muzeum Járy Cimrmana)
Visit the theatre presenting the plays of an imaginary Czech genius and experience the typical Czech humour. Only a few minutes from the Žižkov hotel!
National Museum (Národní Muzeum)
It is the predominant feature of Wenceslas Square which is, among other things, a frequent filming location for Hollywood filmmakers. Its interior appears in “James Bond Casino Royale” and the film about Edith Piaf, “La Vie en rose.” Buy a 5-day ticket – it is valid to the following eight other museums:
Municipal House (Obecní dům) and Mucha Museum (Muchovo muzeum)
An Art Nouveau building in Republic Square (Náměstí Republiky) where you can find exhibitions, a concert hall, restaurants, a café, and stylish shops. And if you are a fan of Art Nouveau, then do not miss out on the Mucha Museum (Muchovo muzeum) showcasing the art of a painter Alfons Mucha whose style is unmistakable.
Franz Kafka Museum (Muzeum Franze Kafky)
If you are interested in the fate of arguably the most famous Prague writer Franz Kafka, then visit this museum which is located in the building of the former Hergert brick factory on the banks of the Vltava River. Do not miss out on a rotating mirror statue in the form of Kafka’s head by the controversial artist David Černý.
