Description :
    Albert Salamonsky (Austrian jockey and entrepreneur) was the one who founded the circus back in 1880, and Yury Nikulin, in addition to being a brilliant clown, was an exceptionally good organizer, directing the circus until his death three years ago. (More information...)

    The Great Moscow State Circus was opened on 30th of April 1971. It has been designed and built by a group of the architects and engineers under the leadership of Mr. I.Belopolsky and still today it strikes everyone with its technical possibilities. There wasn't and still there isn't a similar circus anywhere in the world. Its auditorium represents a 36 meters high amphitheatre consisting of 23 rows totaling to 3400 seats.

    Five interchangeable rings are located in a huge machine hall at the depth of 18 meters. With perfectly adjusted mechanical and electronic equipment the replacement of one ring with another takes 5-6 minutes. One huge thirteen-meter ring goes down, slides aside while another one takes its place and is lifted upwards by a "giant hand". All five rings were used in many shows of the Circus: horse ring, water ring, ice ring, illusion ring and light ring.

Address : Moscow, 117296, Russia, Prospekt Vernadskogo 7
