Constructed in the 19th century, the amazing Staatsoper building presents the major opera productions in Vienna. Even if you don't like opera, you'll probably be thoroughly impressed with the ornate and romantic opera house. I felt so out of my league in jeans and a sweater during the intermission, but up in standing room were quite a few haggard looking students who also wanted to be part of this amazing scene. The next time I'm in town I'll splurge a little and pay to sit down. But for the privilege of seeing an unobstructed performance on my two feet, I paid a mere $1.80.
