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

Took a cruise involving some of Italy, Venice, Split, and Dubrovnik. The price was unbelievable and the entire was magical. Celebrity's Choice Air is the way to go. Unless you have lots of mileage and can fly for hardly anything; Choice Air beat any flights I tried to put together for ourselves as I've done in the past. Venice is... 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.

Very old theater, opened 1893. Great for small concerts, opera, balet, just ask and see what's on repertoir. You'll like it very much.

I'm very delayed in writing this review, but last year while visiting Split we happened to find this beautiful historic theatre and were lucky enough to buy the last 2 seats to the ballet for that night! While the music was recorded, not live, it was still a magnificent night of ballet. I was amazed at the talent and it... More

Unfortunately the theatre was closed for the summer, however I liked the yellow color of the building with it's wonderful carvings (frescoes). Another place to look forward to coming back to and experiencing a performance.

An old worldly Theatre in the centre of Split, it sits all majestic apart from the rest of the building around it. The outside looks very stately and inside it is very grand from the inner entrance till the stage and its sunken orchestra pit. There are plays and ballet shows along with Drama and comedy shows, they are all... More
