The building from the outside is amazing and well worth seeing, once inside it is a bit run down and I suspect the interior was last refurbished about 1950. The opera performance by the Croatian National Opera was dreadful, I've heard better from sqealing cats...More

Gorgeous building in park like setting, surrounded by other fantastic buildings. See if you can catch a show there and pre-book before you leave.

This building is beautiful inside and out! It is worth the short walk from anywhere in Old Town Zagreb to see the gorgeous architecture. I would have liked to see a performance here but there was nothing playing during the two nights we were in...More

Yes, but street parking is very iffy. The best way is to take Uber which is super cheap and not to worry about parking. That is what we do.
