I visited the theatre for Operas 3 times, and I have to say I was amazed!!! The building is unique (allthough the theater is small), the orchestra was excellent, and the voices were far over average. I have to admit that the state opera has by far the best Bass I ever heared in my life. Bravo!

I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Belgrade! You can get the best seats for around $10. I watched the Nutcracker and was completely stunned by the experience. The theater is absolutely beautiful on the inside and so are the performances. The schedule of performances and ticket prices are all available online and are very easy to purchase. Once you...

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 decision to construct a special building for the theatre was made by Knez Mihailo Obrenović. The building was a typical theatre building at the time and was particularly reminiscent of La Scala, Milan, with... More
