The summer stage was built in 1950 according to the projects of engineer Baltazar Dulić, who found the most acoustic location in the heart of the Great Park for a fairytale stage with hundred-year-old pine trees behind, as a backdrop, made for classical performances and opera.
The Grand Terrace is the most important building on Palić, built in the style of secession, which hosts the Festival head office as well as daily press conferences during the festival. Various lectures, workshops, promotions of publications and talks with the Alexander Lifka Award laureates are held in this magnificent building.
