The event is part of the Ha Noi Opera House’s historical and architectural tours and art shows, and also one of the activities being held to celebrate Capital Liberation Day (October 10th).

Accordingly, a total of 70 official documents, photos and technical drawings of six outstanding buildings with French architecture in Hanoi are on display at the Ha Noi Opera House.

These buildings were designed and constructed by French architects in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including Ha Noi Opera House, the Louis Finot Museum (now the Viet Nam National Museum of History), the Ha Noi Post Office, the Indochina University (now managed and used by the Viet Nam National University, VNU-Ha Noi and the Ha Noi University of Pharmacy), the Indochina Finance Office (now the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and the Doumer Bridge (now Long Bien bridge).

The exhibition, which will run until October 27th, provides visitors with a comprehensive view of Ha Noi’s architecture during the French colonial era and facilitates access to archives that are particularly significant to research on the capital’s history and culture.
