Nice theatre in the center of Ljubljana. Went there for Pepelka (Cinderella) which was great. Buy tickets in advance, as it is small and usually full. Try to book from row 10 or less. Staff is really good.

Very beautiful building near the Tivoli Park. Just a few minutes` walk from the Old Town. On both sides of the building there were costumes of pervious (and current) shows on display.
