This building to this day keeps the splendor and comfort of theatrical performances. However, over time, the theater building became outdated and became unsuitable from a technical point of view for performances. It was decided to build a new, modern theater building that would meet the requirements of a developing city.

Drum theater GrodnoThe site of the modern Grodno Regional Drama Theater was not chosen by chance. Starting from the XNUMXth century, the monastery at the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary found its place, where Bernardine nuns taught girls and took care of the needy. In the middle of the XNUMXth century, an Orthodox Borisoglebovsky Monastery, and a little later, a women's sewing school and an Orthodox gymnasium were located here. Unfortunately, during the Great Patriotic War the building was badly damaged and was empty for a long time.
