Home to the National Opera of Belgium, this one of the most important opera houses in Europe. The building you see here today is the third theatre on the site. It was built in 1856; the first theatre was built in 1700. The architecture mixes a lot of styles on both the exterior on both the outside and the inside, such as Eclectic, Neo-Baroque, Neo-Rococo and Neo-Renaissance. Gilded surfaces, huge chandeliers, and the incredible dome painting known as ‘Belgium Protecting the Arts’ decorate the insides. Beautiful paintings and sculptures adorn the walls and hallways. The shows themselves are everything you can expect from a world class institution.
