Built in 1869, the National Theater next to the square is a landmark of Belgrad. My only wish is that we were in town when there was a production to see. The interior is stunning and the exterior is typical of the time when built. There is a small coffee shop and many other cafes across the square.

The building was a typical theatre building at the time and was particularly reminiscent of La Scala, Milan, with... More

When I finally found the office open I was told the performance I wanted to see was booked out except for seats in the top level. These only cost 300dinar... More

There are many theaters around the world that are far more grand and ostentatious than this one. But this is probably a miniature version of those great ones. It is not particularly attractive from the outside or inside, but very functional and comfortable inside. I found the mosaic on the roof dome in the theater hall to be very attractive.... More
