On Rakovsky Street, also known as theatre street, if you take the Slavianska you will reach the most beautiful theatre in the city, the Ivan Vazov National Theatre. You cannot miss its stunning pink and white facade. It is the main National Theatre, showing Bulgarian national and international acts. It was built in 1906 in a neoclassical style and looks a little like a Greek temple as it is decorated with figures of Greek mythology. The triangle above the arches shows Apollo with the Muses and the towers on each side represent the goddess Nike. The interior was renovated in 1929 after it was destroyed by a fire six years earlier.
