Reminds me of my beloved Pokrovka Ulitsa in Moscow.
The Hungarian State Opera house- Neo-Renaissance splendor, with just a touch of baroque for good measure.
It boasts the third best acoustics in Europe after La Scala and the Palais Garnier, but with proportions that feel more intimate than imposing. The perfect place to travel back in time and imagine you’ve stepped into the opulence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Last night we saw Verdi’s Il trovatore.
Tickets start at just $20.00!
Budapest today- a chilly 8 degrees, but the pools were a toasty 37 degrees; creating gorgeous clouds of soft white steam.
The mineral springs that feed these baths are rich in sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate, fluoride and metaboric acid, all good for the joints.
Roman luxury for just a few Euros!
