Our family of 5 visited Zagreb in July 2016. We weren't able to see the inside of the Theatre as it was closed but we enjoyed it from the outside. Beautiful architecture and nice area to stroll along.

Theathre plays aren't usually my cup of tea, but I had been recommended to go here, so my girlfriend and I went to see a ballet. It turned out to be a ballet competition with participants from across the world in memory of a croatian ballet dancer whose 100th anniversary it was. It was very interessting, the dancers were skillful,... More

I tried to get in twice and failed. Local brochures make the inside look beautiful. The outside architecture is stunning day or night. Well worth a walk to see.

We walked around the building because it was closed but the area is beautiful and definitely worth a walk to this attraction and also that many others around it.

I was eager to visit this building as I had researched it and learnt of its beautiful architecture. My husband and I walked here, knowing we couldn't see a performance but just wanted a peak inside. After being stunned by the outside, I entered and politely approached the female security guard and asked "may we walkkkkkk..." Cut off and she... More

This is a jaw-dropping awesome structure to see. There are many other beautiful buildings in this part of town so spend an hour or two walking around. If you are fortunate to attend a performance here it be unforgettable. But even if you are just seeing the exterior it is still worthwhile.

The area around the theathre is my favourite place in the whole Zagreb. I would also suggest booking a play in advance because this theathre is a very beautiful place that will leave you breathless.

I attended a performance of Nikola Subic Zrinjski opera at the National Theater in Zagreb. It was fantastic! The opera is performed in Croatian. but don't let the language scare you off. English subtitles are projected on to a large screen above the stage so you can enjoy the performance and still understand what's going on. I purchased a luxury... More

I wasn't able to go into the theater but was able to walk around it and admire the interesting architecture and intricate detail. I have heard it said that Zagreb is like a mini Vienna and buildings like this are a very good indication of this sentiment.
