The Vienna State Opera is a truly spectacular building dating from 1869. The façade is build in Renaissance arched style and the loggia on the Ringstrasse side underlines the character of the building. The two famous representations of riders over the main façade were created by Ernst Julius Hähnel and erected in 1876. Hähnel is also responsible for the five bronze statues Heroism, the Songstress, Fantasy, Thalia and Love which stand on pedestals inside the arched loggia arcade.
