Minsk Things to Do: 164 reviews and 404 photos
The Цирк (circus) is a sort of institution in Minsk and you can easily find it walking down from the October square in direction of the Victory square and the beautiful Gorky park.
Unlike in most Western Europe, here the Circus is a fixed stone building and not just a big tent. It's open all year and there are shows every week. The circus is owned by the State and Belarusian and foreign companies can exibit inside it.
I had the chance to see a show during my stay in Minsk. Of course it's more dedicated to children and it was more than 20 years that I didn't enter a circus, so I must admit I was not so enthusiastic about the idea; but I must say it was a very nice and interesting experience, a walk back in years and the show was not just the usual outdated circus show, but had some modern dances too and some try to do something new. Yeah the Belarusian dancers can be very pretty, that's probably why I liked it! :))
