Bolshoi Theatre

Moscow, Russia
4.5 / 66
The main opera stage of the country and one of the best theaters in the world. The theater was built in 1825, but in 1853 the building burned down. Three years later, the Bolshoi was rebuilt. Large-scale reconstructions were carried out in 1886-1893, in 1958 and in 2005-2011. The monumental building of the theater is decorated with massive columns, the interior is striking in luxury. The crystal chandelier in the main auditorium deserves special attention.

It’s the biggest theatre in moscow. It almost looks like a museum. The place can be easily located. The inside is ginormous. The building from outside looks huge.
It was my first time visiting any kind of theatre and I visited the finest one, Bolshoi Theatre. We got to see Salome and it was magical. One should definitely visit this once, it's a lifetime experience
