I think this is one of the best opera house in europe. Unfortunately as we had not enough time we could not see any attraction. I asked the cashier if they had performances for time siuts to us, no use. Anyway facade very nice, location perfect, must see.

I think it is the cultural heart of Lviv. The building is absolutely stunning inside and out. Unfortunately did not have a chance to attend any performances, but i am sure this theatre delivers great ones.

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. It's a lovely jewel of a building and the seats are very, very good and close to the stage. It's very hard to figure out how to buy tickets (I had locals give them to me as... More

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.
