The results did not disappoint. The guests to the Opera House opening were astonished. The Opera House was luxurious and highly invested and immediately became one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world.

Somehow, this building survived World War II and was not damaged. On the surviving walls you can see the original paintings, the frescoes that were preserved without harm. Like them, hundreds of beautiful sculptures survived that are spread around the building and are a symbol of luxury in the opera hall itself.

In order to restore it to its former glory, the building was renovated in the 1980's and was cleaned up with government funds. This is how it was able to turn into such a tourist cultural attraction, among the best in Budapest.
