This is a magnificent venue, we went and were thoroughly charmed by the State Ballet Company's performance of 'Phantom of the Opera', it was absolutely spellbinding. Traditional ballet with a contemporary dusting, even had break dancing in it. We bought tickets from the box office, and for the same price as dress circle seats , had our own box. The interval drinks and reception room went way beyond our expectations, the whole evening cost around 46.00 Pounds Sterling for the two of us, we were amazed.
Well worth while, as your public transport ticket also covers you for use of the funicular, which takes you up through Petrin Park to the Observatory on top of the hill, where you get panoramic views across the city. We walked back down the hill, stopping for lunch in the Terrace Restaurant, we had the specials, venison goulash and chicken breasts wrapped in parmesan and bacon, served with creamy mash potatoes and mixed green vegetables, with two glasses of lager the bill was around sixteen of our English pounds, and that for Sunday lunch. Amazing.
Another one of the must see sights, and for anybody with a mechanical bent, just how in Hades did they work out the gearing and mechanical linkages all those centuries ago? I bet a computer couldn't do it!
Cruising the Vltava River in Prague, and passing under the world famous Charles Bridge aboard an historic paddle steamer has to be a fascinating experience, and these two steamers provide that opportunity. We had already booked our cruise before we saw the paddle steamers, but enjoyed watching them as we cruised on the river and passed through the locks with the PS Vysehrad, but would much preferred to have been on board. Brilliant.
