It was an impressive building with a park in front and located close to the other attractions. There were several statues and art sculptures in the park and Christmas lighting.

Zagreb is not only older monuments of history, but they are nice and newer buildings. An example is not the only national theater, but buildings south of the railroad tracks. Locals tend to recommend only older monuments !!

The theatre is iconic from any angle with it's yellow exterior studded with white marble columns and topped liberally with statues. A large flower lined green space borders the west of the theatre. A particularly pleasant surprise is stumbling on the well of life in a small park fronting the theatre.

I would highly recommend fitting this into your trip to Zagreb if you can - don't just come to stare at the building but actually go see a performance too! I love going to the opera, theater, and ballet and especially like to make the time to see these types of performances in various venues around the world. I recently... More

This is definitely one of the highlights in Zagreb if you love beautiful architecture. It's a magnificent building where you can watch the ballet, see an opera or just enjoy sitting on the surrounding grounds and take in the view.

Theater looks very nice from the outside (I have not been inside), it has nice park in front of it, and it is very picturesque. Close to the center, easily reachable by tram or walking.
