Today, Wellington is New Zealand’s political centre. All government ministries, including Parliament and a plethora of foreign diplomats, are based here. But travellers booking flights to Wellington will experience more than a democracy; Wellington is considered the arts and culture capital of New Zealand. Home to New Zealand’s film and theatre industry, the city also hosts the “Te Papa Tongarewa” (the Museum of New Zealand), the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Ballet and the biennial International Festival of the Arts. Along with culture and art, the city also boasts a nightlife not to be missed.
