I went to the theatre at four different times to try and buy tickets to a ballet, as I kept being told the box office was open at different times. 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

Very glooming minimalist shows - not worth the time and money. One was a retrospective on contributors to the museum, one was one one Reuben's painting, some impressionist rooms and a religious retrospective on the Cross.

It's not only a theatre it's also a very important Monument of Culture protected by Republic of Serbia. Founded in 19th century the building was a reminiscent of La Scala in Milan. Later recontructions changed the appearance. I love this theater and visit often both stages.

The theatre is historic and neat just to see. The well-worn seats, the gold leaf, all that stuff. During the NATO bombing, the theatre opened its doors to the public for 1 Dinar per person, it acted as a safe refuge. Pro tip - the productions are mostly in Serbian, mine was. And you know the big LED sign above... More
