Arts and Entertainment in Prague

If there is one thing Prague does best, it is entertainment, especially theater and music. With an overwhelming number of gorgeous classical concert halls, cool rock and roll dives, innovative theaters, and independent cinemas; this pulsing city has nights of entertainment to offer. Although the quality of the entertainment matches that of Western standards, the prices, however, do not. Take the opera for example: the best tickets range from 850kc to 1000kc. With the current rate of the dollar (17) that is from $50-$60 and we are talking front row Ladies and Gentlemen. Not bad for a night at the opera. The majority of operas are in Italian, French and Czech; most theaters offer electronic subtitles located subtly above the stage.
