I could feel the vibrancy of the city outside the opera house, as it’s situated right in the university area - the oldest university in the world. The decor and the atmosphere of the opera house itself however brought me back to the early 20th...More

Very nice antique theatre with well-preserved wooden understage machinery. You have to make an appointment to visit it, but that is possible through http://www.perspectiv-online.org/ Very nice people and, if you’re a theatre lover, worth the trip
