History

Тhe building of the Hotel Opera was built between 1867 and 1870. This representative building constructed in the style of academism was primarily meant as the premises of Hotel “Bulevar”. Later the original building was extended. In 1899, the first film was played in the hotel “Bulevar”. Between 1909 and 1911, the Belgrade Opera was situated in the present day building and that’ was a reason why the hotel became known as a hotel “Opera”.

A permanent movie theatre was installed in the hotel “Opera” in 1912 and was called “Grand Cinema of the Gaumont Family”. The stage also hosted some performances of Brana Cvetković’s theatre.

This facility is a part of architectural complex which was built at the and of 19th century and where significant historical and cultural events for Belgrade and Serbia were taking place.

The building of the Hotel Opera is a testimony to the cultural, urban and architectural development of Belgrade during the second half of 19th century.
