A small theater, but nicely decorated. The show “metropolis” I saw was nice too. But it uses recording instead of live music, and the service of the theater is less than you would expected from the nice looking building. But still it worth the visit...More

Walking the park was our goal, spotting the theatre was a bonus. This neo-baroque masterpiece was established in 1895. It is one of Zagreb's most elegant buildings.

To visit Zagreb, park outside and use the blue trams. The parking in the city is scarce and tight. This is a good stop on your walking tour. There’s a small square in front of the theater building.

I walked alone through Zagreb following the "Lenucci horseshoe"( a group of parks that form letter U), and finished at the Square of the Republic of Croatia, which is the most beautiful square in Zagreb if you ask me and saw this building, felt a...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.

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.

The theatre is just west of the old central part of the city. We actually walked there. It was perhaps a 10 minute walk.
