This opera house is magnificent. Only wish we could have heard a performance. Gift shop also has a nice assortment of traditional Hungarian music CDs.

The inside of this place is absolutely stunning. I never saw a show, only had a quick visit inside for 10 mins to take some photos. I wouldn't go out of your way to visit, but if you're nearby, do pop in with a ready camera.
