The National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet is among the oldest theatres in Ukraine. It was founded in 1867 when Ukraine was a part of the Russian Empire. A fire burned down the whole building on February 4 1896, and was later rebuilt in Neo-Renaissance style. The Kiev Opera is today one of the most venerable opera houses in Europe.

Note: Picture no 2 is the building opposite the Opera. Just to show how different architecture can be.
