The Hanoi Opera House was built by the French Government during the early years of the 20th century. The Construction began in 1901 and was completed in 1911.
Even these days, it is the.....
largest Opera House in Vietnam, .........seating 600 people.

This is a beautiful building of great historical and cultural importance.
For those lucky enough to be going to the Opera, then they will get to see the inside. Evidently, it has a magnificient mirror room on the second floor .

Opposite to it, is the Hilton Hotel.
