The gorgeous neo-Renaissance opera house is worth a visit as much to admire the incredibly rich decoration inside as to view a performance and hear the perfect acoustics. Tours are still departing while the opera house undergoes massive renovations (due to be completed in 2020) but most of the operas and musicals are being staged in the Erkel Theatre, Budapest's 'other' opera house.
