Be careful of anything off of the main floor if your back is not without issues. Even the main floor looked cramped. Great production was kind of lost in the brutal experience of sitting for two hours without legroom of any kind.

Just finished watching I ballet production of the snow queen. Highly recommended. Beautiful production right costumes and excellent music. The opera house itself is exquisite. The upper floors are less recommended because you cannot see the entire stage. Well worth a visit.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
