New Stage (Nová scéna)

This modern theater building from the 1980s is still one of the most talked-about buildings in Prague. Its characteristic form, designed by Stanislav Libenský and constructed from more than four thousand blown glass blocks, drastically changed the neo-Renaissance appearance of the street. It’s part of the National Theatre and the home of the Laterna Magica and other original projects.
