Expats.cz: Prague Is the Cheapest City In Europe for Ballet, Opera, Art

The Czech capital has been named the best value European city for culture vultures, expats.cz wrote.

Looking at 16 cultural capitals and the cost of experiences like opera, galleries, and museums, Britain’s Post Office’s annual Cost of Culture report has placed Prague in the top spot as the cheapest city for a cultural experience.

Six world-class cultural highlights in Prague cost just £93.58 – down 26 per cent since last year.

By comparison, a ticket to see the Barber of Seville at the English National Opera, London, at £96.50, costs more than an entire weekend’s worth at Prague.

A ticket for the Czech National Ballet (Valmont, £24.21) is less than a quarter of the cost of the Vienna State Opera Ballet (Giselle, £107.15). 

Warsaw, Budapest, Moscow, and Stockholm rounded out the Top 5. The most expensive city was Barcelona followed by Madrid, Paris, London, and Vienna.
