The architecture of the theater is impressive and interesting, especially the interior design. We've been there on the opera and it was great, and since we were on the balcony we had fantastic view. Ceiling of the theater is wonderful painted

One of the finest buildings in Zagreb. Located in the city centre, surrounded by flowers and grass. Lovely place.

We saw Tosca and wept................beautiful. The Theatre is well maintained and a credit to the city. The drinks service is old style and needs updating but the heart of the service is genuine and kind.

Situated in the very heart of Zagreb surrounded with many beautiful and important buildings (Arts and Craft museum and the Law University) it is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful buildings in Zagreb. The inside of the theatre is even more beautiful than the outside and it reminds a lot of Vienna Opera but smaller. The performances and... More

We spent one evening attending a very, reasonably priced, gypsy jazz concert by the Rosenberg Trio (with a 4th guitar player, in part), that lased over two, full hours, on a weekday night. The concert hall is lovely, airy, spacious, excellent acoustics, lots of places to check outer garments, numerous bathrooms, coffee shops, and a very fast walk from the... More

If you pass by Zagreb don't miss the chance to experience a cultural event in this fantastic theatre, where there are all kind of performances, of course the best that you can see in Croatia.

Great cultural opportunities in Zagreb, not only at this theatre, but at many others, reasonable and inexpensive taxis. This was a real plus for our extended visit

This is a beautiful, Hapsburg yellow late nineteenth century opera house in the center of Zagreb. The interior is ornate and elegant. Catch a performance if you can, with the schedules available on the internet. For a truly Croatian historical experience, and if you're lucky with scheduling, we recommend the opera "Zrinski", about the historic defense of the town of... More

This is one of several buildings in town that to me have a foreign influence. It's beautiful. There's a nice park next to the theater. We did get to peek our heads inside but it wasn't open at that time for a performance. One of the top 20 theaters I've seen in the world.
