One of the best Theaters in Romania

Without a doubt this is is one of the most beautiful Theaters in Romania! The atmosphere is astonishing! You must go at least for once if you visit Cluj.

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. The last show was the Opera "The Barber of Seville" and small children were attending together with young people and older ones. Usually the... More

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.

This centennial+ building just downtown is emblematic for Cluj; decidedly it should be renovated inside, but outside looks well. Nice opera and theater shows; unfortunately closed in summertime.

The peculiarity I most love of Cluj / Romania, generally speaking, is that you can become cultured even if you are not wealthy. In comparison with other countries (more developed ones), here you can go at theatre, manifestation, show, etc at a very low price. In Cluj one can find all sort of activities. Many of them, free ! It's... More

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.

This place was built mere than 100 years ago by Fellner und Helmer, the Austrian architect who built many important theaters in Europe. It is an elegant place, a bit dusty, yet it struggles to engage a younger audience, by holding modern events.
