Given that we do not have circuses in Canada anymore this was a step back to my youth. There were animals involved but I was not overly offended but beware if you are sensitive to this

We wanted to see a Russian Circus and decided on this one, due to location (close to the center) and because it’s the most traditional. It was quite complicated to buy tickets as our Canadian Card was not accepted online. We bought tickets in the...More

Fantastic show! I'm now wondering why I haven't been to the circus for so many years. It is no longer entertainment just for kinds. I should say that more than half of the audience were actually adults without children. Great show. Highly recommend!

I check the circus website, they did not specify the dress code but I think casual should be fine. Unlike when you visit cathedrals they expect you to be all covered

We bought tickets at our hotel without problem. We noticed many people queuing to buy tickets at the circus box office. Not sure why you are having difficulties. Keep trying because the performance is well worth it.
