Surprise to find an excellent restaurant and bar in the basement of the Opera and Ballet House. Door is around the corner on the right facing the entrance. Go down steps, cross the water and enjoy a fine meal. We enjoyed a string quartet who played extremely well. Rockoko played both classic and modified jazz/rock.

This is definitely a must do - even if you are not especially fond of ballet or opera ( why not try!) as the 1901 built in a neo- renaissance style building is spectacular both externally and internally. Thus far all programmes for the performances have included English translations.

I've seen two different productions here, and the quality is quite high, but the most fun thing is just being inside the Opera.

The architecture was quite wonderful, one can go every few steps to capture gorgeous pictures. The seats were not overly comfortable but this should not be overshadowed by the spectacular setting. The salon room should not be missed.

While in Lviv we decided to see an opera in the Lviv Opera house. We purchased tickets a few days ahead of time and had excellent seats. The inside is beautiful old opera house built probably over a hundred years ago. Well worth the experience.

It cannot be compared, for the building, with the Odessa opera house but it is still very nice. The quality of the performances is of a very good standard but of course, with no comparison with the Mariinsky in St Petersburg.

This building is one of those you just have to see when you in Lviv, but go inside, because outside it is nit so beautiful.
