The number of foreigners in Czechia has been steadily going up. In the second-largest city, Brno, there are currently more than 40 000 of them. This is also why cultural institutions such as cinemas and theatres slowly begin catering to English and German-speaking audiences. One of such institutions is National Theatre Brno, which now offers performances with English and sometimes German subtitles in its programme in addition to Czech subtitles.
Theaters in Brno are finally reopening after the pandemic restrictions being relaxed with exciting programs to make your evenings unforgettable. This fall, discover the first of the National Theater Brno (NdB) ballet this season, Stabat Mater. It has now been five years since an awe-inspiring legend of Czech choreography, Pavel Šmok, passed away. To commemorate his iconic talent, the NdB has decided to dedicate the premiere to this choreographer, who was essential to the Czech independent dance scene of the second half of the 20th century. The premiere will take place on 3 September at Mahen Theatre. And thanks to our partnership with the theater, we are bringing you information on how you can purchase tickets a whole month in advance!
Monday, 24 May will mark more restriction relaxations in Czechia. High school students will be allowed to return to schools in full regime. Universities will also be allowed to reopen. On the same day, hotels and other types of accommodation will resume their business as well and indoor gyms and sports areas will be able to welcome up to 30 people at a time.
