St. Petersburg Circus (Bolshoi Sankt-Peterburgskii Gosudarstvennyi Tsirk)

St. Petersburg Circus (Bolshoi Sankt-Peterburgskii Gosudarstvennyi Tsirk) Review

Though not as famous as the Moscow Circus, St. Petersburg's version of this popular Russian form of entertainment dates from 1867 and remains a popular treat for children. Avid young circus fans get a kick out of its adjacent Circus Art Museum, founded in 1928.
