We visited the circus because of the kids, we went laughing and enjoying the rest of us. Part of the show was the sense of a return to childhood. A relatively small place (or it seems so), the show is invested.

What a fantastic show. Entertaining, funny and a great afternoon out. The quality of the acts was great. The venue is great in a permanent position in the middle of the tourist section of Budapest - just near Hero Square. Easy to get to and plenty of other stuff in the area. Some of the acts were almost scary to watch - but excellent. The animals were well education, in excellent condition and are obviously happy to work. (no working animals show a joyful face when working - of course they would all prefer to be in their natural habitat).Being in a permanent location, the animals do not have to live in unsuitable travelling cages/enclosures. Cost was very reasonable.
If you want a real circus experience this is it.

This is an excellent show and a superb traditional circus in every respect. The human performers were breath taking and amazed us with their athletic ability.
The animals were well training but I had a little concern with making animals perform in a circus.
The locals love the show and it was a full house.

Well worth a visit and grata value for money as the show goes for hours.

This just about eclipses the Elizabeth Bridge - which is situated North of this one, with its majestic gantries and dizzy lighting at night. Connecting the 2 historic towns with a majestic hand across the magical Danube - this is a top 5 attraction - to be experienced at night - staring over to the grandly lit Parliament to the North East.

The hall is not large as my expect, but this is still good enough. The show is entertaining, even I'm not a kid. And don't worry if you don't know Hungarian. Unlucky, it haven't some "standard items" in our memory eg the Monkey part and Lions.
This is really enjoyable and worth to spend an afternoon for this (the show is around 2.5 hours, but you need to count for the leadtime and traffic/ticketing).
