Cheap hotels near Prague State Opera in Prague, Czech Republic
One of the major performance halls in Prague, the Prague State Opera boasts a diverse history. Originally founded as an opera house for the city’s German-speaking community, the theatre in the 1930’s first became a refuge for artists fleeing the Nazi regime. Following the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, though, the building served as a hall for Nazi assemblies.
After the war, the hall became a home for Czech opera for the first time and was briefly regarded as a champion of avant-garde works before being incorporated into the National Theatre. Today, the theatre hosts opera and ballet, and is well-suited for large-scale productions.
