Okay….. so this isn’t exactly a roof, it’s a ceiling, but I included it because in Prague the things under the roof are just as beautiful as the things on the roof!
Cheers to you from incomparable Prague~

Prague’s Beautiful National Theatre!

The theatre is so remarkable and distinct, it distracts one’s attentions from the performance! It is symbolic of the emphasis Czech’s have always placed on art and culture.

The performance, Czech composer Antonin Dvorak’s Rusalka, consisted of opera with classical and slavic folk components, and included modern dance and ballet. It is rarely performed in the west. It was a tour de force and held its own with the magnificence of the theatre. It contains the famous “Song to the Moon,” featured in the movie Schindler’s list.
