National Opera and Ballet Theatre

A classy evening out is best spent catching an opera or ballet performance at one of the best theatres of its kind in Eastern Europe. The repertoire is regularly updated, and tickets cost a fraction of the price charged at comparable institutions across Europe.

Do & See

The city's main artery is the Stefan cel Mare Boulevard, one of many Moldovan landmarks named after the revered Stephen III of Moldavia, whose monument also marks the entry to Chisinau's central park (named, likewise, after the 16th century prince). From here, it's a manageable to walk to most of Chisinau's city centre attractions. The city is delightfully green, and its pleasant parks readily provide refuge on hot summer days.
