    The Croatian National Theatre is a good looking building. The original theatre dating back to 1859 was destroyed in a fire in 1881. For the present theatre the location was changed. The present construction dates back to 1893.

    The theatre's website is also in English and you can order tickets there.

    The Croatian National Theater (Hrvatsko narodno kazaliste, or HNK) is located at the top of Marmontova in Trg Gaje Bulata and it a huge building taking up virtually an entire city block. For the most part, it's a simple building except on the front facade that you see in this picture. There are a few statues on the third floor level that represent the arts.

    It was built in the Neo-Renaissance style from 1891 until 1893 designed by the architects Vecchietti and Bezic. The great fire in 1971 ruined most of the theater. Restoration was finished in 1979 by architect Rasica. Every summer Croatian National Theater organize Split Summer Festival between 14.July - 14.August 1998.

    The theater started in 1859, but a fire destroyed the building in 1881. It was relocated to this building in late 1800's and been here since. A really fantastic inside with elegance and class
