Czech National Theatre was built in the year 1868 to 1881 by Josef Zitek in Neo-Renaissance style, modelled on the Nostitz Theatre; it burned down after first performance. Josef Schulz, a pupil of Zitek, had the rebuilt theater with donated money.
When is the Prague National Theatre opened ?
First season began with the festive premiere of Smetana’s national Peter Libuse, which was composed for the location.
One of the best architecture in Prague. Beautiful picturesque facade!
