You can buy the booklet with nice pictures and an English summary inside. They serve good wines and free chips. When you are looking for a romantic night out; this is it!... More

Don't expect level of Metropolitan or Bolshoi Theater. However, you will be impressed how in middle size European city you still can have solid level of classical entertainment. We went couple of days for balet and opera and enjoyed high professional level. Not brilliant, but really solid performance and quality organized entertainment.

The most famous Zagreber theatre with so many nice and excellent operas and other classic events. Building with high historical value. Very good repertoire. Not to miss.

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.
