The new programme is very inventive and great. They have used many elements of dancing, air gymnastics and of cause animals. Russian circus is one of very few in the world where you still can see dogs, camels and at this programme even elephants. They...More

I remember circuses differently as a child, more about animal acts, but this combined that with a good bit of theater. The dance routines were nice, very well done, and my kids' absolute favorite was the one clown. It really was a high point of...More

What we saw during the circus performance blew us away with one act after another of top-notch quality and skills. We had not expected that level of artistry and talent because of the small size of the ring, and the hard-sell activities in the lobby...More

It was a great show, of animal acts, loved the part with the Tigers, Lions and jaguars. Plus they had all sorts of dance routines mixed with other animal acts. The best circus I have seen in a while.

Must visit place. Good for 2 hours entertainment. Magic show is the best. All the shows is in russian language. Animal and birds show bit boring. Take tickets a day before because it is usually houseful. Not far from central. Snacks available in the interval....More
