The oldest show of its kind in the world, the Black Light Theatre Srnec has been thrilling audiences since 1961.

Step back in time to the days of yore by experiencing the frivolity of a traditional Czech folklore show. Influenced by Pagan and Christian traditions, folklore incorporates a mix of music, and dance in its celebrations.
Originally, there were several folk festivals throughout the year, some of which are still celebrated today.
These include the Drowning of Moria — a celebration of the long and harsh winter — where young girls create the figure of a woman from straw, and tree branches before setting it alight.
Alongside festivals, music is also an important part of this culture, and folklore shows in Prague often feature dulcimer performances. The musician of this stringed instrument used small hammers to articulate a merry tune.
If you want to experience the Prague of centuries past, you can do so by booking to participate in a Czech folklore evening. Get swept up in the magic of lively dances from performers in colorful outfits.
These elaborate costumes usually feature embroidery and ribbons, and traditionally differ between each town or village.
On one of these experiences, you’ll be presented with a gourmet Czech feast, which includes grilled meats, potato soup, and doughy bread.
Try the local tipple — medovina — as you clap along to energetic songs and spectacular jigs.

The Austrian composer — Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — took the world by storm from a young age and is still renowned across Europe for his spectacular melodies.
Born in 1756, the musician wasted no time in honing his craft and was composing songs from the age of five. By this time, he was also competent on both the violin and keyboard.
While Mozart’s days were cut short by illness at the young age of 35, he managed to create over 800 original musical numbers during his lifetime.
One of his most celebrated works was the Jupiter Symphony — the last piece Mozart ever wrote before his fateful illness just 3 years later. Other notable compositions include Exsultate, jubilate and Eine kleine Nachtmusik.
Because of his deteriorating health, Mozart never got to finish Requiem in D minor — the piece he was avidly working on before his death — however, it was completed by his student, Franz Xaver Süssmayr, in later years.
One of the best ways to experience the composer’s chilling duets and spine-tingling arias while in Prague is through a Mozart concert.
These performances take place in a historic ballroom, featuring ornate decor and intricate paintings, where you can travel back in time, and experience the magic of the 18th century.
This beautifully-preserved landmark is the ideal location to dine on a 3-course meal as you relax to the sounds of Mozart’s most iconic opera numbers.
These unforgettable performances include The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni.
You’ll be served a fusion of Czech and Austrian cuisine to give this experience a unique twist.
Whether you choose to dress up for the special occasion or not, you’re guaranteed a memorable night at a Mozart concert to experience the most magnificent music in Prague.
