The theatre has a very nice architecture from the habsburg period, even if the old hall is not very big (max 500 seats). We had a guided tour in the basement museum, but the accent is on famous Serbian composers, dancers and actors with photos...More

Founded in 1868, the National Theater was an extravaganza in a town of 25,000 inhabitants. However, ethnic pride and the support of its community, as well as several generous noblemen contributed to the growth and expansion of the Theater. Initially focused on theatrical plays, it...More

This theater dating back to 1869 is located at the Republic Square, right next to the Marriott Courtyard hotel. It is a small gem with balconies and boxes and a beautifully painted ceiling. We watched Carmen opera there and enjoyed it a lot. The two...More

I went to see Chekhov's "Ivanov" and Puccini's "Tosca". The actors in the Chekhov play were exceptional, especially Nikola Ristanovski in the title role, Predrag Ejdus as the count, and the two leading ladies. The opera was not *quite* as good, but still a valiant...More
