World class performance, dirt cheap price - it almost feels like a robbery

It is right up there among the best deals we ever have had during our travel around the world. For about 4 euros each (maybe slightly more after Brexit), we got tickets for the... read more

It is right up there among the best deals we ever have had during our travel around the world. For about 4 euros each (maybe slightly more after Brexit), we got tickets for the centre balcony seats on the first row for a truly amazing ballet dance. It is a creative and modern take on the life of Alexandre the... More

Absolutely a must see in Belgrade. Even if you don't speak Serbian, go to see any show to live a unique experience transporting you back in time. Splendid decoration, main scene and a grand hall with a stunning ceiling.

It is definitely one of the places every traveler has to visit. With a wide array of shows it offers a truly special cultural piece of Belgrades Theatrical culture. After the show, I went for a walk and discovered an amazing barbershop just behind the National Theatre called Mr. Sweeney Todd - and there the 2nd show began....

My wife has been asking me to take her to the ballet for 20 years. Good seat in Melbourne are very expensive. I'm not a fan of ballet but I thought I would take my wife, teenage daughter and young son to the ballet in Belgrade. The tickets are reasonably priced so I purchased 1st class tickets. The theatre is... More

I visited the theatre for Operas 3 times, and I have to say I was amazed!!! The building is unique (allthough the theater is small), the orchestra was excellent, and the voices were far over average. I have to admit that the state opera has by far the best Bass I ever heared in my life. Bravo!

I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Belgrade! You can get the best seats for around $10. I watched the Nutcracker and was completely stunned by the experience. The theater is absolutely beautiful on the inside and so are the performances. The schedule of performances and ticket prices are all available online and are very easy to purchase. Once you...

Built in 1869, the National Theater next to the square is a landmark of Belgrad. My only wish is that we were in town when there was a production to see. The interior is stunning and the exterior is typical of the time when built. There is a small coffee shop and many other cafes across the square.
