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

One of the most recognizable Lviv symbols, Opera House name Krushelnytska is a magnet for both connoisseurs of architecture, history and theater and just romantics of all ages, who can always be seen on the benches near the fountain on the square in front of the Opera, or to walking in a park leading to it. Inside the theater is... More

We visited the theater with my friend from Latvia. She was delighted with ballet ( we had seen Swan lake) and astonished by amazing architecture of theater. Nice experience for her.

Beautiful setting,with a sad history. The architect commuted suicide when it was discovered the building was sinking as it was built on soft footing. It was later stabilized. Wonderful entertaining evening.

It is definitely one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world. Located at where the Prospect Svobody (Lviv's main promenade path) ends, it is arguably the most precious pearl in the Lviv's architectural crown. Apart from the repertoire itself (they still know how to properly stage classical operas!), the opera interior is an undisputable must-see attraction, not only... More

This may be one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world. It is beautiful during the day and fantastic at night due to the lighting. The facade is wonderful and you can sit in a nearby street cafe under ballerina umbrellas ( incredible imagination) and watch it for hours. The interior is no less impressive. From the entrance...

The Theater of Opera itself is an architecture sample. It was built on top of the city river, sank for a while, but still stands strong till today. People not only enjoy the show inside, but also sit or play in the square in front of it. We enjoyed the opera from the box three boxes from the Emperor's box... More
