What it must have been like in the "hey day". It is amazing and I wish we could have seen a performance there. The tour was worth it.

It is a wonderful building. We were lucky and we could buy a ticket and I am so glad that we could see it inside. It is full of gold and the decoration is wonderful.

This is an amazing show. A must if this is your first visit to Budapest. The place is small so dont need to book the most expensive ticket. The middle range is perfect. The performance gives you a true flavor of Hungarian music and dance.

Very elegant, have only seen from outside. Was told by a tour guide that it is being made in to a hotel.

There are tours at 3pm and 4pm guided by English, German, Spanish, French, Japan, Chinese speaking guides. There's also possibility to buy an extra ticket for short concert but we didn't take it. The Opera House is amazing! Walls and ceilings covered by gold, huge beautiful spaces. You have to go there!
