We were a student group in Russia for mission trip and in Moscow for a few days at the end of our trip. We had an amazing evening at the circus which we took the Metro 6-7 stops from Red Square. Easy to understand even if you don't speak Russian. The facility seats 2-3 thousand people and all seats have... More

Wonderful Snow Queen show with all circus elements and animal tricks. Very friendly staff, elder children can go alone not being accompanied by the adults. Do not book tickets in advance through the Internet, it is much cheaper to purchase them in the ticket office right next to the entrance.

It was amazing show and very professional work of all artist including animals, their shiny furs, wiling to work and mood told a lot about conditions they are kept in - it's very nice to think that they are friends with human artists. Thank you for this.

Very enjoyable afternoon performance. Well organised, courageous and skilful acrobatic displays. The clown seemed to delight the small children in the audience. Altogether a great spectacle.

What more can I say! Thank you for sharing such a great circus show with us all here at Manchester. From start to finish, so many different acts for all the family to enjoy. I would not care to single out any one single act as they were all equally as good as each other. So my vote has to... More

Went with my family, daughter 5 yrs old. First part is a bit long. Light, music and show is nice for the children. For adults is a bit boring. My daughter loved it :) . In the buffet: ice cream is terrible, coffee is terrible, pop corn is so-so. Don't buy nothing there except mineral water, hehehe))) No parking! Better... More

An amazing evening easy to get to location via the Metro. Large venue with free coat cloakroom. Lots comfort facilities. Snacks and non alcohol drinks available. Toys etc for children to purchase.
