Beautiful Theatre

Beautiful old-style theatre where you can see an opera for only €10-€15. Nice experience that in many other countries would be much more expenive.

This national theater in the heart of the city is beautiful. We only saw the outside, but it seems well maintained and the colors were vibrant.
