Must see Zagreb – Croatian National Theater

Croatian National Theatre Zagreb

Croatian National Theatre Zagreb

HNK or Croatian National Theater building is a masterpiece built in the neo-baroque style, designed by  architects Fellner and Helmer. Opened in 1895, seating 750 people, the theatre boasts its rich facade, its iron curtain and seven painted curtains which are displayed on differen occasions. It unifies drama, opera and ballet. Opposite the entrance to the theatre, you can enjoy the view of the whole square sitting on the marmor bench, part of the Mestrovic’s work – Well of life. A little bit lowered from the square surface, a beautiful sculpture by one of the best known and best sculptors of Croatia, Ivan Mestrovic.  Women and men, young and old, struggling through their lives  in a circle of love and pain around water. In picutre, the Croatian National Theatre Zagreb. Just in front, on the bench by the Well of Life I spent my after school time many times, long time ago. 🙂
