A wonderful place for listening as well as viewing, the Hungarian State Opera House is home to the third best acoustics in al of Europe! With only the Scala in Milan and the Paris Opera House creating a more detailed sound environment.
Completed in 1905 after 54 years of construction, St. Stephen’s Basilica was named after the first King of Hungary (975–1038); whose mummified right hand is kept in the reliquary. The building is an absolutely magnificent carved work of art. The dome is 96m high and filters daylight in a magical way, reflecting in guided textures the detail of the mosaics. Absolutely breathtaking.
The New Theater – Új Színház – is located across the street from the opera house. Walk to the end of the narrow Dalszinhaz Utca and you will see this very striking Art Deco edifiace.
