  • Beautiful building exquisitely preserved. Lots of History an important artists and composers are celebrated inside. The tours can be very very crowded, they have them simultaneously in three or four languages Hungarian English French German Spanish. Different groups Go in different directions so that they don't interrupt each other. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fielded the questions that we had.
  • It was under renovation when we visited! So we cannot see anything outside, but inside was gorgeous and amazingly decorated, even from the communist time! One very good thing about this Opera house is that you can take photos with the flashlight and record the short opera demonstration ! The performances and the acoustic are wonderful even they performed in a hallway during the renovation!
