From Mediterranean Sea to Balkan Mountains: the theaters of the southern Slavs
The Adriatic Route of the European Route of Historic Theatres opens South East Europe to you. Just follow the route in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro.
National theatres are at the heart of cultural life along the Adriatic coast.
Whether originally designed by architects from Austria, Italy, Serbia or Montenegro, built for only part of the population or for many language groups – today they all serve the whole nation and offer a window to Europe and the world.
