As you can imagine, the Vienna Staatsoper is filled with beautiful chandeliers. Here is one that hangs above the grand staircase.
Do you like it better in black and white or color? Photo taken in May 2015.

Here's a look at the seating inside the Vienna Staatsoper. The box with the imperial eagle is where the Emperor would sit, these days it just goes to those who can afford it. Seats in that box can go for thousands of euros! Photo taken in May 2015.

Like most of the grand opera houses of Europe, the Staatsoper sustained a lot of damage during the war. This is not the original chandelier, but it certainly is beautiful and fits well within the space. Photo taken in May 2015.

After the rain came the bright, blue sky. Don't let the color fool you though, it was still quite chilly. This Pegasus and rider adorn the Staatsoper, Vienna's main opera house. I took a tour of the building - inside shots are coming next week. Photo taken in May 2015.

I found this super large scale mural during my recent weekend in Vienna. It was so big, I couldn't fit the whole thing in one shot! The mural was painted by artist ROA in 2013 - you can see some more complete views of the work here. For more murals, take a look at Mural Monday. Photo taken in May 2015.
