The National Theatre is a hidden treasure which for sure - once you see this place from the outside - you wouldn't expect. Beautifully finished this place brings you back in time and being there is a journey you will surely enjoy.

This diverse Theater is everything we expected and more. We have seen 2 different production here and they were both well done and interesting. Learning different cultures and being part of them as we were at this theater speaks volumes.

Enough start with - ballet crew is made of bunch of Russians. Of course, it is nothing like, for example, theater in Vienna, Berlin etc., however, lot of Croatian famous actors or opera singers who can now be seen even on West End in London, started right here. It is really professional, polite, but casual dress code required, and building... More

We saw the Hrvatski Narodni Theater (HNT) and it looked very interesting. So we checked the internet and saw that they played Kafkas "The Metamorphosis". The pictures looked like it would be a very physical theatre, so we decided to visit the theatre, even without speaking more than two words of Croatian. From the inside the theatre is also very...

We saw Splitski Akvarel, and it was wonderful. The view of the stage was unparalleled. Look forward to attending again in the future.
