National Theatre Prague – rooftop

National Theater rooftop

In the exterior, the loggia stands out with Corinthian columns above the main entrance, preceded in front of the building. It bears the statues of Apollo and nine Muses by Bohuslav Schnirch. On both stair pylons there are horse trigas with goddesses of Victory, which were mounted in 1911. The original trigas by Schnirch were destroyed in a fire and consequently they were newly created by his disciples, sculptors František Rous, Emanuel Hallmann and Ladislav Šaloun.
