When we talk about Modern Serbia, we refer to XIX century liberation form the Otoman empire, and the emancipation of the liberated people, that was eager to get along with the European currents of the time. That is when city of Kragujevac lives its blooming, because it is pronounced capital of Modern Serbia in the 1818. Due to this fact, much was invested in cultural and educational development of the city, and one of the main events of the period was foundation of the first theater in Serbia - the Knjazevsko-srpski theater in the 1835. It was founded and directed by then highly recognized play-writer and expert in the theater. Nowadays, it is a pride of the city, especially because it still works, it still prepares great plays, hosts theaters from all over the region and organizes ine of the main theater festivals in the country - Joakim Fest! Ppeople of Kragujevac gladly visit it, and talk about it to the visitors with special joy.
The building is beautiful, both inside and outside! If you are art lover it will certainly be interesting for you to see it, because it represents the typical high architecture of the XIX century Serbian cities. Younger generation gather on the small square just outside the theater so it is more than a cultural landmark - it is a place for chating, getting to know the locals and enjoy the summer eves. The employees of the theater are always verry opened to the visitores so you can enter and see its interios and main hall for free! The best possible way to pick up abit of history and a bit of energy of the city.
