The Hungarian State Opera House first opened its doors in 1884.  Designed by Miklós Ybl, one of the most renowned Hungarian architects of the 19th century, the construction was created in an eclectic, neo-Renaissance style.  There are many baroque details and frescoes by the top Hungarian artists of the time, including Bertalan Székely, Árpád FesztyMór Than and Károly Lotz.  On either side of the risalit are statues of Ferenc Liszt and Ferenc Erkel, two of the outstanding artists of Hungarian music.  Both being the work of Alajos Stróbl.

If you are not able to attend a performance, then try to  take the guided tour.  The tours are given twice daily in many different languages. Although they are bit formulaic and the guide may be on the weak side- they are definitely worth it just to have the chance to explore the interior of this magnificent concert hall.
