NATIONAL THEATRE - OPERA HOUSE was built between 1872 and 1875, being designed by the Viennese architects Fellner and Hellmer in Renaissance style. Devastated by two fires, it was rebuilt between 1923 and 1928, except for the sides. The main facade and the auditorium are in Neo-Byzantine style, and the lateral facades are Renaissance-style. The building hosts four major cultural institutions, the Romanian Opera, National Theatre, German Theatre and the Hungarian State Theatre, Timisoara being the only European city where the state operates three theaters in different languages.
