Apartments Close to the Budapest Opera House: Central Accommodation

The Budapest Opera House represents the Hungarian culture's refined taste in art and their esteem for it. Budapest is not known as the Paris of the East for nothing. The Hungarian State Opera headquarters date back to 1884, when the Budapest Opera House was opened by Emperor Franz Joseph I in a grand opening ceremony that was attended by the court and the highest members of European aristocracy. The faultless architecture and structure quickly made this Opera House one of the best European Opera theaters, and a rival for the Vienna Opera. Its extraordinary acoustics were renowned and praised, and it became the most popular theater among connoisseurs of classical music. One of its art directors was the great Austro-Hungarian director and composer Gustav Mahler. The pianist and ethnomusicologist Béla Bartók also performed there.

The opera house is situated in the Pest area of Budapest, at 2 Andrássy Avenue. This large avenue is where the Hungarian bourgeoisie and aristocracy built their houses and palaces surrounded by gardens in 1880. Just as it does today, the opera season started in the spring, in April, and was a social event that attracted the best singers and musicians in Europe. This event was an opportunity for the inhabitants to show off how rich they were, with items like dresses embroidered with gold threads, pearls, precious stones and gems -- dresses created by the best designers of the era.

Miklos Ybl designed the building in the shape of a horseshoe, with a capacity of 2,400 spectators. Ybl was a fashionable architect at the time and a large proportion of the palaces on Andrássy Avenue are his work. The highlight of his Neo-Renaissance design is the inner dome with its fresco paintings and dramatic lighting. It is a work of art that has remained standing in spite of the tragic political events that Hungary experienced in the 20th century.

Today, the surroundings of the Budapest Opera House have become a haven for millionaires, luxury designers and international brands that have located their headquarters on the most beautiful boulevard in Eastern Europe. In their shop windows you can see collections by Luis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci and Burberry, among others.
