...but the feeling coming from old time furniture and the dust almost everywhere it reduces the charm of the building. The atmosfere in the time of acting actors is great !

I have been to the National Theater for theater plays, opera and music concerts. It is a beautiful and majestic building. I am grateful for the variety of shows hosted in here, suitable for all ages.

We love this place. Whenever we have the opportunity to visit Cluj we reserve a place at the theatre. The grandeur of this place and its history makes you feel as if in another world. Last time we were at Swan Lake and we were deeply impressed. We look forward to return very soon.

Highly recommend this place for theatre lovers but not only as the Theatre stage hosts also ballet, opera, dance and other forms or art. The building itself is of great architectural and historical value.
