I have attended a performance at the Belgrade National Theatre almost every time I have traveled to Belgrade. Whether it's opera, ballet, a symphony, or drama, I have been impressed with the professionalism and talent displayed by the theatre's artistic troupe and staff. Also, while the theatre is small, it is beautifully decorated and well preserved.

This is a pride and joy of Belgrade and Serbia. Not only that the outside of the building is beautiful and imposing but the interior as well. On this visit, I haven't been inside, but I have been other times and can vouch that you will have a great experience whether you go to see a ballet, opera or a... More

The Serbs are serious about their theatre, and this wonderful National company presents the best in drama, opera and ballet, all of which receive healthy subsidy, meaning that everyone can enjoy the terrific shows presented. Productions change frequently, so it's possible to see a play, and opera and a ballet, all in one week, all of high quality, innovative and... More

After the pedestrain zon of Knez Mihaillova, we passed by the National Theatre which was an old structure but with nice architectural design from outlook. We could not enter the site due to time constraints and hope to visit this theatre again next time.

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
