Very nice building

Royal Dramatic Theater (Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern) is very nice and impressive building. The decorating statues are gold color so you get the idea of Art Nouvoveau.

....but gaudy. Its not that it is not impressive, but it looks a little out of place. As a theatre sure...but I was not a fan of its design. Much more beautiful and stately buildings in this beautiful town.

This 1908 Theater is a superb example of the Art Nouveau. It was decorated by important Swedish artists like Prince Eugen Waldesmarsudde and launched the careers of notables like Greta Garbo, Ingmar Bergman, Max Von Sydow and Bibi Andersson. The Theatre contains a restaurant and cafe as well.

I couldn't get in the building. Just saw the reception part. But watch out the plays in there. Because they have English subtitles for certain plays (not all of them). If you come across one of them, buy a ticket. (make sure they have English subtitles for that play) Also local people just sit the stairs of theater and watch... More

This extraordinarily gorgeous Art Nouveau theatre by the waterfront can claim the title of the most glamorous building in Stockholm. Dating from the first decade of the 20th century it had the services of renowned Swedish artists like Carl Milles contributing to its ornateness. Interestingly Prins Eugens also devoted his artistic talents to it. With a facade constructed from marble... More

It's definitely a beauty of a building. Great architecture and it's kept up very well. I would have loved to get into it and see inside, but from the outside, you can walk by, or it's on the stop of all the local tour buses.

This building is perhaps Stockholm's finest art nouveau and also the site of the absolutely most classical theater performances, from Shakespeare to Bergman. The house is also very beautiful waterside location and is the gathering place for sun-worshiping urban walkers.

The royal dramatic theater is located in the center of Stockholm in a very beautifully decorated building. The inside is also a pleasure to look at. The prices for plays are high but worth it.

There is a bundle of highquality swedish actors/actresses that started their career on Dramaten and it is a classic old theatre with all the ingredients for a visitor to have a real good time. Love the building both inside and outside

The building self looks very dull, no colour at all , only the lamps and the statues are goldish. But when you go inside, all is bling.
