The building is nice and well restored. In particular the view and the decorations in the second floor. Try to combine your visit with a performance. We watched an excellent ballet performance (midnight summer dream & 4 seasons).

Went here for a day trip on the train during our trip to Prague, really beautiful inside and a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

I had the afternoon tour and loved! What an amazing revenue and detailed stories. We had the lucky to see the stage courtiers open and all employees working for the ballet that was about to start.

This restored Opera House is an architectural treasure. Beautiful facade with gorgeous mosaics. Didn't go inside but exterior is most impressive.
