I didn’t spend a great deal of time in Budapest but the Opera House is a must to visit. It is beautifully preserved, rich history and art, and is still in use today.
You can enjoy watching an opera show at night and go on guided tour during the day in 5 languages (individual tourist from 3pm-4pm, group tours needs reservation. More details here).
Entry cost and you also pay a bit more if you want to take photos (you’ll get a wrist band). I went in 2011 so I’m not sure if it still applies.
I highly recommend the tour 🙂
