The estates theatre – Stavovske

The Estates TheaterStavovské divadlo – the place where the Czech national anthem could be heard for the first time. The city of Prague is full of many gorgeous theatre stages yet besides the National Theatre you should really put the Estates Theatre on your must-see list. You will be charmed also by the beautiful rich decoration due to which the performance will turn into an unforgettable experience. Before we visit it now we need to give you details concerning the history and other interesting circumstances related to this Old-Town building.



In 1787 the theatre experienced a great honour, the world-famous genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The year of 1799 was a turning point, too, when the theatre was from the original owner Count Nostic purchased by the Czech Estates. The new owners renamed the theatre Stavovské (Estates Theatre), and it has not changed until today. In 1827 the theatre was greeting another important persona, the second bandmaster František Škroup. After WW1 Stavovské divadlo became part of Národní divadlo (National Theatre).
