Prague Opera Breaks

4 days from £354 per person

Head to Prague, the medieval capital of the Czech Republic for a wonderful opera break. A city with no less than three first-rate Opera Houses: the ornate and stately National Theatre which places emphasis on works by native Czech composers, the more intimate State Theatre, and the historic Estates Theatre where the premiere of Mozart’s Don Giovanni was given. Beautifully set on both banks of the Vltava River, Prague is the city of a hundred spires with a historic centre that’s not only fascinating, but also a UNESCO world heritage site. Roam through the city’s unique districts and soak up the alternating styles of old and modern as you explore the Old Town, beautiful parks and centuries-old chapels. Amble along the quaint stony streets, cross the gothic Charles Bridge and visit the enchanting Prague Castle. There are great beers, delicious local food and a rich and varied cultural lifestyle just waiting to be explored.
