I recommend visiting this beautiful building coated in gold. Amazing glass windows and luxury interior. Go visit the old restaurant which is a piece of art.

We took a free guided tour with a student and learned many things. It lasts about one hour. There is a nice cafe inside. Most shows are free or very cheap so that everyone can attend.

Although limited concert agenda, the venue is a completely restored building of the imperial times which brings you back to a different era. Seats and accoustics far from ideal

The theatre looks beautiful fro outside but the tour was just cancelled for the day... Seems like you have to go with the hope that you'll find a tour, a gamble..
