Am honored to learn the great history of this place. Of how this theatre helped in a big way to bridge cultural and class differences being experienced back in the days. The interior decoration and arrangement of this location is mind wobbling. The lively aura of the music from the performances in the theatre is so relaxing and refreshing. I got a chance to see the backstage of the performances and it was superb.
I loved the historical exhibitions in the Theater.The Roman architectural structure of the theatre is mind blowing especially the mix of old and modern architectural buildings here. It was delighting to set my eyes on the different types of old age weapons. I also took some photos in the arsenal to remember my tour. The boatyard display of the theater makes this tour to this place worthwhile.
I visited the Hvar theater and Arsenal in October of 2018. I was lucky enough to be there on performance. I got an opportunity to visit backstage. It was superb.
