History of State Opera House in Vienna
Originally it was termed as Vienna Court Opera. The work began in this building in 1861 and it went on to finish in 1869. The building was not considered to be very popular for the public and it was termed more of a private residence which was destroyed in World War 2. Towards the end of the war, fire engulfed this opera by American forces and a significant portion of this opera house was damaged.
A decision was made to rebuild the opera house as it had been in its original state. The main experts who were involved in this work were Ernst Kolb. Due to the appalling conditions which went on to exist at the Theatre An Der Wien, the opera house thought on the lines of raising a significant amount of money, so that the reconstruction work of the Opera house began speeding up. A lot of private donations began pouring in along with donations of building material of the Soviets who had a strong liking for the reconstruction of the Opera. The mayor had gone on to place donation boxes in the whole of Vienna so that people could contribute.
Events in Vienna State Opera House
The opera house is open to kids and a lot of plays have taken place here. For boys and girls, there is a school between the ages of 8 to 14 years. This takes place in the afternoon after regular school hours. An introductory session on how to become opera singers is illustrated in details. Online tickets for concerts in Vienna State Opera House can be availed in advance to treat your ears with soulful classical music by Mozart or Strauss.
Around 80 minutes before the start of each performance, standing room tickets are sold cheaply which are suitable for all age groups. In 2009, the 140th anniversary of the Vienna opera house was marked. To celebrate this milestone a new idea to draw in new crowd emerged. A gigantic 50 square screen was placed to the side of the opera house, that went on to face Karntnerstrasse. This new mode of entertainment brought forth excitement to many tourists along with locals who soaked in this cultural event.
There is no mandatory Vienna State Opera dress code to attend a musical performance. However, wear a black tie along with smart casuals to blend in with the rest of the Opera fans. Wear proper elegant attire during Christmas or New Year holidays to not stick out as a tourist.

Trip to EuropeWe went to Eastern Europe cities Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest in the first half of August. The tour was arranged and managed by Holiday Aces. It was a great experience and we enjoyed every moment of our vacation. The Operation Team of Holiday Aces did a good job especially Meenu Goyal, Amit Rajput and Sumit. They made a Whattsapp group and answered our queries in time. The hotels are good but far from city centre. I would suggest to provide hotels near to city centres to Indian travelers, who are going first time to Europe orother places so that they could reach historical places easily.
Trip to EuropeGreat experience. We hadn't heard about travel masterz before i got their quote via travel triangle. Our trip was of 9 days to 3 cities, Budapest, Prague and Vienna. The entire experience was simply amazing because of Arpita, Amit and the rest of travel masterz team. They were always there for us, always available via whatsapp and checking constantly if all is well. For everything from the intial planning to the final landing they were with us. Many many thanks to team travel masterz and my very best wishes.
Trip to EuropeMe and my wife planned 11 days trip to France and Italy during mid Feb'19. To say that our trip planner Siddhant and his team put together the experience of a lifetime for us, still somehow seems an understatement! When we started planning this trip, we spoke to about two to three different travel planners and while almost all of them were thorough and impressive in their own ways, Siddhant was the one who provided itinerary suggestions which were real time and exactly what we were looking for. Siddhant himself is quite familiar with various destinations across Europe and hence his expertise helped us in planning a wonderful trip. We started our trip from Paris. We stayed in Paris for three days and covered many known places like Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame etc. We also did cruise ride and even visited Indian street in Paris, named Gare du Nord, which had every Indian thing available. From Paris we travelled to Venice and stayed there for two days. Our stay was booked on the canal, which gave an edge to the whole trip. We visited beautiful islands in Venice like Murano, Burano and Torcello. We also enjoyed the scenic beauty of Venice by foot. Did Gandora ride, which was one of the lifetime experience. In Venice we did some shopping too and relished mouth watering handmade chocolates too. From there we travelled to Florence and stayed there for two days. Florence is a perfect place to be discovered on foot, it has very fine and breathtaking architecture. We also did a one day Tuscany tour where we covered Vienna, Siena, vine tasting etc. We were lucky enough to locate and dine in Indian Restaurants in Florence. From Florence we visited our last stop Rome. We stayed in Rome for 3 days and were able to see some lovely places like Colosseum, Vatican City, Fountain Triveni etc. Siddhant helped us in planning everything, right from perfect commute to choosing proper stay location so that we could easily travel to/from station by foot. He also helped us in figuring out stay duration at each place and also helped us in deciding right flight/train timings so we don’t end up wasting a day in just commuting. It’s so important to plan things right when you are travelling by yourself (no group). It turned out to be the most amazing and memorable trip of our lives. And we intend to book our future trips with Siddhant and his team. Thank you Team Duniya Safari :)
Trip to Europe"Travel with no regrets" is what i would like to say before planning on to any trip. So i had booked a 9 Nights and 10 Days customised package to Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice) and Austria (Vienna). Well where do i start from right from airport pick, the hotel bookings, Places recommended, City tours, train travel to different cities and drop-off at the airport everything was so smooth with Street Romeo Travel planner ; they also are always there to help you if you have any queries during the trip too without any issues. Also the really good part was the pickup and drop off at the airport cause we were provided with chauffeur driven Mercedes E class cars which is usually not common and majority of the travel agents don't provide & this had not cost us extra at all everything was well within the budget estimate provided to us. I came across Street Romeo Travel planner through Travel Triangle, and they were the one who had given me the best budget for the trip so with no questions asked we went ahead with them. Great Job Team Street Romeo Travel Planner. Keep it up!! Cheers.

Trip to EuropeIt was a nice trip, loved the beauty of Prague and Budapest. Should have planned one more day in Prague than Vienna. Thanks a lot Rohit and Prashant for all your help and guidance. Both of them were always available whenever we needed them. Also, due to flight delay our airport pickup was missed and we booked taxi by ourself but they provided us the refund. Overall, nice trip and good experience from travel triangle.
Trip to EuropeThe tour was good and well coordinated including staying in hotels, transport and other facilities. The experience of Hop on & Hop off buses both in Vienna and London were good. Vishal Thakur's coordination during our trip was commendable. His help in searching out transport to reach to Crystal world in Innsbruck and his 24 hours availability on phone was really helpful.
Trip to EuropeMy tour of Munich, Vienna, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam was very well organized by Memorable Vacations Holidays. They took care of all the hotel, flight and train bookings including all the pickups. The sight-seeing which they had arranged was also very good. In this regard, I would like to express my gratitude for all the help extended by Pratik and everyone else at Memorable Vacations. They were always there to help me out during the entire journey starting from the initial planning until the very end of the tour.
Trip to Europehotel in Budapest was really good prince appartments provided very good service.. but hotel in Vienna and Prague were very much ok we were not satisfied with the size of the room for 3 people. and secondly you should have informed us about the non AC rooms in Prague it was very hot for us to sleep in Prague without AC.
