They say is the oldest one in world, oldest in time of feudalism when normal people did not alowed to come to theatre. So this one is first to alowed normal people to come in. First public theatre. Amazing story

This theater is a part of a great history of Hvar. This theater is one of the oldest theaters in Europe, really small and lovely.

What a curious place, I recommend checking out its story. However, as per 2017, it is closed to the public so yu can only see old photos and the outside. When they open, surely my rating will be higher

The theatre is shut at the moment for renervation which is sad, but it's possible to climb up the outside steps to get lovely views over the main town square.

Located on the second floor, the stairs up to the theater are above the tourist information office. It is on the end of the Pjaca, or Square, nearest to the" Riva" shore front promenade. The banners advertise upcoming performances.

Theater is under repair and over a week visiting there we saw no movement in getting anything completed. Outside looks like it will be a neat attraction to visit once opened again.

I was eager to see the theater but there was some renovations happening so I could not go in. We went up the stairs and down again, that is all.

Is under repair at the moment very unique and old theater unusual because both the common folk and the aristocrats were allowed to attend the theater at the same time in the same location sits right on the shore in central Hvar
