The JK Tyl Theatre in Pilsen

The building of the Grand Theatre was constructed in 1902 and belongs to the significant cultural monuments of the city. It was designed by architect Antonín Balšánek (also the author of the Municipal House in Prague) and the curtain was created by one of the most significant Czech painters of the late 19th century, Augustin Němejc. The capacity of the theatre hall is 444 seats.

The building of the Grand Theatre, one of the first category cultural monuments, is not only a beautiful historical memorial with many theatre legends having performed on its stage, but it is also a living cultural centre of the city and the entire Pilsen region.
