This theater is very special for me because the seats for the audience are literally on the stage where the plays take place. Here I don’t have a feeling I am in a theater; it’s rather like I came to visit friends and they decided to put on a play for their guests. It’s a very intimate and unique experience. If you sit in the first row it wouldn’t be unusual if you became a part of the play.
It was created more then sixty years ago and you won’t have trouble finding it because it’s just across Eternal Flame. Actually you can see their repertoire from the main street. It is in old Austro-Hungarian building and when going there I always stop to enjoy the inside of the building, which I think is the perfect introduction to any play.
There is a lounge area, so after the play you don’t have to return to the outside world immediately. You can stay in the theatre’s world a bit longer. If it’s your night, you will even get to meet the actors when they change and come out to relax.
For me this place is most magical in winter, so if you are in Sarajevo right now, you should visit it for sure. It will take you somewhere else. It slows down time a little bit.
