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

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.

Lucky enough to see a show there, Ana Karenina. It was awesome! Zagreb National Theater is just an awesome place. Very acoustic, nicely decorated, worth every cent spent!

If you are an artist or architect you must visit. Simply charming and gorgeous. The outside is a interesting yellow color with a large garden area.
