Croatian National Theatre (Zagreb)

Croatian National Theatre
The Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, commonly referred to as HNK Zagreb, is a theatre, opera and ballet house located in Zagreb. It is owned and operated by the Ministry of Culture. The monumental Croatian National Theater building in the middle of the Maršal Tito Square was erected in 1895 according to the concept provided by Helmer and Fellner, well known theater builders. This is why it resembles the Viennese theater so much. The Croatian National Theater building is among the representative historical theaters in Central and Eastern European cities.

One of the top 20 theaters I've seen

This is one of several buildings in town that to me have a foreign influence. It's beautiful. There's a nice park next to the theater. We did get to peek our heads inside but it wasn't open at that time for a performance. One of the top 20 theaters I've seen in the world.

Great architectural building

The theatre is a great architectural example of the style used in the Austro-Hungarian Empire for some of the public buildings in the late 19th century and until World War One. The building looks also a little like the National Theatre in Cluj (Transilvania, Romania) which was built in the same period and designed by the same architects Fellner and Helmer. It is an interesting building to see if you are passionate about the European architecture from that period.
