We saw the ballet "The Nutcracker" here on the 2nd night after it opened in Belgrade. The choreography was great, and different from what I have seen in different USA performances of this ballet. For instance, there were no Russian Dancers in Act II, and Drosselmeyer was a much more central figure to the dancing and the story in Act... More

The National Theatre is a gem in the heart of Belgrade. The interior is as beautiful as the exterior. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a performace here. Walk down the street to the Hotel Moskva for cake afterwards. Their cakes are amazing and you won't be disappointed!... More

Just like the Royal Theaters in Western Europe or in Russia. Located in the very center of the city, just across the famous sculpture and meeting point "Kod konja". The big stage is something you should definitely see when in Belgrade. Even if you don't understand Serbian, it doesn't matter - a good play is when you don't know the... More

Looking it from outside it is breathtaking, but the interior of it is stunning. Ceiling painted in gold, Russian style and class, makes it the heart of Serbian culture. Built in 19th century, worth of every dime for the entrance

This is a good and very inexpensive place to catch up on some culture. I have seen a number of shows here over the last 2 years, for the price of a few Euro' you can get the best seats and the shows are to a good standard. Definitely worth a visit.

Most of the old museum is hidden and not open to the public. It is just an empty room, chairs set up like in the cinema. Maybe they rent it out for larger gatherings or award shows?

Unfortunately, once due to the bombing during World War II. As a result of additions and reconstruction of the theater facade is a combination of... More

The National Theater makes you feel royal. The architecture, design, welcoming atmosphere and great productions make it a must-visit place when in Belgrade.
