The buidling and the main Vestibul Hall with impressive stairs is a masterpiece itself. On the first floor, the so called Mirros Hall is amazingbig room ( 35 x 7,5 m), with spectacular ceiling.

Beautifull and perfect place to relax and listen to some good opera! If you are in Lviv you should definitely visit an Opera.

Beautiful and it even has a river running through it!! It caused the back wall to collapse and the architect died very soon after. Strange!!

Whilst the exterior may not look all that grand the interior is quite impressive. It's not a large opera house so get your tickets early or ask at the box office if there are any cancellations. The performance of "Swan Lake" ballet was very professional indeed. Surprisingly there wasn't a bar or cafe inside for an interval drink. (However a... More

Brilliant atmosphere. Get there early to appreciate the building. Do not use cameras during performance. The audience are really enthusiastic and carry you along even if you can't understand the words ( Die Fledermaus). The music was great. Good tickets cost £4 each........excellent value. The scenery was beautiful.

They don't appreciate tourists, there is always some reason why you can not enter inside. Even if there will be appropriate day to enter, they will say that you have to enter with organized trip, so you have to pay also to the guide.

Well, first, I'm not sure where else you can get front row seats to the opera for 8 dollars. To buy the tickets, there is a ticket office in front of the opera building to the right after you enter. Getting in and to our seats was fairly easy. There are men and women bathrooms on opposite sides of the... More

İnterior design of the Opera is just breathtaking. So are the performances. However the audience was too noisy during the performance; they kept talking and eating so snacks that smelled so bad. Also it is hard to watch the play from the balcony. I recommend more central seats. Above all such an experience in Lviv is a must. Don't miss... More
