The National Theater is a superb building in Prague with great history. We saw this when we passed on a Vitava River cruise and the architecture is beautiful from all angles. Unfortunately there were no tickets available when we were there.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town
