Very attractive part of the city, clearly a romantic location given the beautiful architectural design and the well maintained park full of flowers. Inside the building is a marvel as well with long and wide stairs and beautiful ceiling.

Beautiful gem of a theatre with a large variety of shows, including plenty of ballet (which is very popular here so do book).

A play about three generations of a family and all the changes they went through. It also shows the political change Croatia has undergone.

This theatre is a little jewel in the center of Zagreb. It is worth a visit, possibly with a guided tour, in order to enjoy the history of the place.

Here I am not commenting the building or the repertoire. This is a comment on the sad state of the theater. Let’s start with the awful cobbled stone path that leads to the main entrance: it is downright dangerous, especially if you wear high heels. Making it more appropriate is more than needed.

Very beautiful building, actually designed by the same architects, that have designed the National theater Ivan Vazov in my home town Sofia. Very nice!

I can not vouch for all of the performances, however the building still has the air of austrian times, croatian ladies are dressed up for the occasion. it looks much bigger from the outside ;-)
