Description

Do you know the legend of Martisor? Martisor is the celebration of the arrival of spring and the name of a red and white tassel pin worn on the chest from March 1 to 31. Moldova’s Martisor Festival is an attraction for those who want to discover the rich culture and talented artists of Moldova. Throughout March, music and dance ensembles from Moldova and abroad transform the Nicolae Sulac palace stage displaying the traditional and joyous greetings for the coming of spring. For more than 50 years, the Martisor Festival has paid homage to this romantic tradition through music and dance.
