Circus is a long lasting traditional in Belarus and the show didn't disappoint us. It was well performed, highly professional was presented on the stage. We enjoyed the colorful ice show.

We were in doubt what to expect as the children were too old for the circus in Denmark, but it is such a strong tradition in Belarus, that we wanted to experience it. This was the best experience visiting Belarus according to all of my...More

While I usually don't have a problem with animals in circuses, it was really sad to see how uncomfortable the bears looked riding the bulls. It seemed more of a stunt than it needed to be, and it was just sad. Also, most of the...More

Best circus I've ever seen by far! 2,5 hours of world class circus acts in an extraordinary beautiful arena. The manegé/stage turned out to be a pool of water and at some points of the show it turned into a fountain. Highly recommended!

I love the circus. That said, this was a treat. The show was themed on fountains, which set the backdrop for all the acts.

I went there with my little cousins and grandparents several times. The shows presented there are very nice, interesting, colourful, funny... Well everything as it is supposed to be! The building itself seems quite small, but then it means you will see the show well...More
