Did you know?
The first building that used to host the National Theater was a 1852 baroque building destroyed during World War II. A hotel was erected in its place that incorporated in its design a reconstruction of the entrance of the old National Theatre building.
Between 1983-1984 the building was considerably altered. Its entire facade was covered in order to represent the architecture and Auster regime of the communist period. From 2012-2014, an extensive renovation process began which allowed the building to regain its original form from 1973.
This changed the entire institution transforming it in a cultural hub.
