Once a ruin of a fortification structure, it served as an outdoor theater briefly during Soviet times. Along with the Soviet Union, the Green Theater decayed and became shelter for hippies, wanderers and other forsaken souls.
But ultimately, it was quietly privatized, fenced off and turned into a summer party zone. To find it, you have to head along Parkova Alley following directions to Kureni, the famous ethnic restaurant on the hills. The fence around the Green Theater is hard to miss. You will go down a few steps as you enter its territory, and will find a stage with seats at the end, with a bar stretching on your right to pick an aperitif.
This year, it opened the season on the same day that Euro 2012 football championship games kicked off – on June 8. Parties have been kicking four times per week and will continue in this high-paced rhythm until about September.
