I visited the circus in Minsk several times. In general, I always liked the show, but it might be too long for kids. There is always one interval, when a very long queue appears at the ladies' washroom. There is actually one thing that seems...More

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.

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.
