Opera from the balconies and steps of the theatre - a Celebration of the Arts and free to all. Quite by chance! during our visit to Zagreb. The theatre is a beautiful and highly decorative jewel, gilded and ornate. Would love to see and hear an opera in this gem.

Maybe the most beautiful building i saw in Croatia, although i saw only the outdoors. Is recognised from it's yellow colour. But i thing it needs renovation, let's hope that the Croatians will use properly the money from EE, as the Slovenians did and most of the buildings now look wonderful after renovation.

This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Croatia. You can tell it was a product of the Austrians. Truly magnificent. I recommend you see a show here if you have a few nights in Zagreb! Tickets are quite cheap.

We had a tour its worth it to see the desecration of the upper circle by a 1960s maniac. This upper level is so incongruous with the baroque decorations on the other levels
