The Prague State Opera House (formerly, the New German Theatre) is a gorgeous neo-recoco edifice, built in the early 1880’s. Unfortunately, it’s surrounded by soviet-era architectural atrocities on the sides & a very busy thouroughfare in front – so it’s hard to take a good picture. This one is the best I’ve found.
