    Opera House

    20 reviews

    I've never been in the opera house but I've passed a few times on long walks down Andrassy Street. It resembles other turn of the century architecture that I've seen in Vienna but in typical Hungarian style it's a bit more eccentric. The main feature that I noticed is the clam-shell-like awning over the main entrance.
