The puppet show is mastered and enjoyable; Mozart’s masterpieces were played back (some good quality sound - not the best -) Don Giovanni is a funny show!

We saw the Mozart's Magic Flute. The puppets and puppeteers are amazing and the scenery is beautiful. The theatre is very intimate and it is incredible to think that children's shows carried on there all through the communist era. It's is well worth a visit....More

See a performance at Mozart's work. The theater is old and the seats are not so comfortable. There is a small shop that you can buy marionettes.

I know the story of Don Giovanni so to start with was not sure whether or not to laugh at the marionette antics of "Mozart" but it is just such fun you cannot help but enjoy it. The opera experience is condensed and the music...More

Provided you know either the opera itself, or a basic plot of it, this condensed (a bit over 1hour) show is entertaining, using recorded music over the puppet's actions The puppet (or maybe marionette) show is expertly handled - these are professionals, and it has...More

This fun local theatre had a wonderful opera performance. They did a great job at handling the marionettes and putting together a great story line. The theatre offers a mini shop to buy the marionettes and a small concession stand for customers. If you have...More

I was skeptical of seeing a marionette show when we visited Prague, but I enjoyed it. The performance was just about 2 hours (Don Giovani) and very entertaining. It's a good activity for a group or a nice way to relax and spend some time...More

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
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
