Budapest, together with Vienna, is the international capital of opera and the city’s beautiful opera from 1884 is worth a visit even for those who are not interested in opera music.
The opera was opened in 1884 and they hired the best craftsmen of the marble and frescoes. The result is impressive and even today one is struck by how beautiful this building is.
One can take a guided tour to see the opera house each afternoon. If you want to take pictures it costs a little extra.
