Some say this is the oldest theater building in Romania.
Long time ago, on this land there was a mining exploitation called… Thalia, after the goddess of dramatic art.
In time the city became a multicultural one, reuniting Polish, Jews, Serbians, Germans and Romanians.
In 1790, dramatic art lovers set up the Union of Dilettantes.
