Travel Tip: National Theatre in Prague, symbol of Czech cultural heritage and national identity

in #travel4 years ago

Dear Steemit friends and followers,

Welcome to my Travel Tip edition where I promote some of the most beautiful places, interesting landmarks and impressive architectural sites of my homeland, the Czech Republic.

Today, I am going to provide you with some cultural experience as I will take you to National Theatre in Prague.

Situated on the bank of the Vltava River in the historic center of Prague, the National Theatre is one of the most iconic landmarks of the Czech capital as well as one of the most important national monuments of Czech art and history.

The cornerstone of this majestic building was laid in 1868 but it was not until 1881 when the theatre was officially opened. Unfortunately, soon after that, the theatre was badly damaged by a fire and it has to rebuild and reopened two years later, in 1883.

What makes the National Theatre even more special for the Czech people is the fact that the construction of the building was actually funded from a nationwide collection.

Astoundingly beautiful from the outside, the theatre is just impressive in the inside too, decorated with paintings, sculptures and statues by the most renowned Czech artists of the 19th century.

These days, the National Theatre hosts three artistic ensembles: opera, ballet and drama. If you are fan of any of these, you should definitely book a ticket as watching a performance in the National Theatre of the Czech Republic is an unforgettable cultural experience.

Great to hear that you are promoting your country in steem and i would love to visit it someday...@czechglobalhosts

Hopefully you can. It is definitely worth it. Tomas

Yes it was pleasure to see your comment..@czechglobalhosts

Very nice place to travel, i remenber this place in the Movie Mission Imposible...

Haha, you are right.... Prague was featured there:)

This is a definite on my list. we are still planning to stay for a month or so, doing a Christmas tour of northern Europe, mainly around Germany, Poland, but also time in Prague. Which week would be best to plan to hit the most festivals there?

I am glad to hear that. Sounds like a perfect vacation. To be honest I prefer Autumn or Spring, the months of September/October and May/June purely because of the weather. Summers can get too hot for sightseeing and winters too cold. Unless you are planning to see the Christmas markets that are rated as on of the best in the world.... In either case enjoy! Tomas

yes, we plan on doing a Christmas market type tour of Northern Europe, looking for special events and festivals happening on certain days.

Love Prague! Amazing city! Been there three times now. Is the beer still cheaper than the water? ;) hahaha

Amazing Ariticle, i like your post...

How i wish i could visit such amazing places as like this places on your post.

its so beautifull spcecially from top it look more awesome and exellent also your shot of night good like as gold @czechglobalhosts

Well Tomas! this time you brought something very historic in terms of Cultural aspects. It is very sadden to know that it was badly damaged by a fire but Czech Nation built it more beautifully later. Especially The Vltava River is giving it an alluring view.

By the way I have been an actor in plays during my University days and i love Theaters . One thing really gained my attention as you said,

What makes the National Theatre even more special for the Czech people is the fact that the construction of the building was actually funded from a nationwide collection.

This shows that as Nation you people are united <3 which is really appreciable thing.

Keep spreading the Peace & Harmony.

Stay Blessed, Steem On!

Very beautiful place, although I do not like the drama, but because of the location and the architecture of the building is so beautiful, makes me want to go there, Thanks Tomas you always explain it in solid brief but very clear.

Wow gorgeous building and amazing architecture. When I visited I did not know that was a theater but guessed it was something like that. I have never been one to be interested in Opera when I was younger but lately I have started to be more interested in theater. Thanks for sharing.
