The Opera House in Sydney or Sydney Opera House, is one of the most distinctive buildings of 20th century architecture in the world and with its port has become one of the most recognized symbols of Australia.
In 2007, the Opera House was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, in addition to its declaration of National Trust of Australia in 2005 and Denmark’s cultural heritage in 2006, the latter due to its creator, architect Danish Jorn Utzon.
This building is one of the busiest tourist spots in Australia. The most basic is a one hour tour through the most representative of the site accompanied by a guide who entertains tourists with the anecdotes of the Opera House, another takes visitors through a tour behind the scenes showing new places that are usually only seen by the artists who exhibit there. And the most glamorous and complete the tour usually includes a dinner cruise on Sydney Harbour and concludes with attendance at one of the shows that are presented there.
