The building itself is a national treasure. Inside, you’ll find world-class theatre, opera, music and ballet productions. The construction of the building began in 1894. The ceremonial curtain was painted by Croatian painter Vlaho Bukovac while Viennese artist Alexander Goltz decorated the ceiling of the auditorium. The building was opened by Austro-Hungarian emperor Franz-Joseph I in 1895.
An unmissable visit for fans of European culture.
