It was nice for pictures but it was a bit short stay and no time to go inside to pay a visit. I have to warn the travellers to pay attention because one of our friend got her Euro & passport stolen from her backpack.

If you are interested to go inside this close to 200 years old theatre, you must come at the right time. They only open to public once every two week, on the Saturday afternoon.

The visit inside is fascinating. Our group is led by the stage director, explaining every detail of the stage design, stage lift, curtains, music control, and even prompter’s corner.

We have chance visiting different rooms, such as the making and storing of costumes, shoes and wigs; also passing the underground tunnel to the ballet practice hall, which can facilitate ballet dancers to move safely and freely between the stage and practice hall.

Another highlight is to visit emperor’s box that you can appreciate the poor coverage of this corner box to the stage, but is the focal point drawing attention from audience.

I didn't have the opportunity to go into this building, but just to stand outside in it's grandeur is wonderful. You feel like you are visiting the time it was built. It's definitely a photo opportunity.

One of the most beautiful buildings in Croatia, it is a grand building with amazing architecture. Should be visited once for cool photography and enjoy.

It is always a nice experience to have a program in this beautiful historic theatre from 19.century built by the famous architects from Vienna - Fellner and Helmer. They built the "Vígszinház" theater in Budapest, State Opera in Prague and many other theatres in this specific style.
