Nikulin Moscow Circus on Tsvetnoi Bulvar is one of two circuses in the city.Their program changes twice a year. Excellent acrobatics. Mercifully the only animals they use are seals. Tickets Rbl 400 upwards.

Fantastic show! I'm now wondering why I haven't been to the circus for so many years. It is no longer entertainment just for kinds. I should say that more than half of the audience were actually adults without children. Great show. Highly recommend!

This was a good night of fun - and no need to pay for the best seats in the house - we had the 2nd cheapest and a fantastic view. I think some of cheapest seats might have problems with columns, but everything else was a good view. Go early and check out the venue. It is so well designed... More

Although it is hard to get tickets, it is so worth it to watch...I do recommend you to go to Gum Square or the Nikulin Circus ticket office itself to get the tickets by yourself on the spot or buy for next day ticket, save you the trouble to seek help from your hotel unless your hotel conceige has lovely...

I always knew that Moscow's circus is one of best in the world so visiting Moscow I had to visit the circus. Performance was great, such a shame you can't take photos. I was glad that we bought tickets before as it was fully packed.

The circus show was good - some of the shows were fun but the magic ones were quite lousy, it was quite obvious. Nevertheless the rest fairly entertaining. Unfortunately, we could understand nothing at all as they all spoke in Russian. What was shocking is the staffs who manages this place. They do not speak English but that wasn't the... More

We visited with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons and we were all amazed at the excellence of the show. All the announcements were in Russian - so we don't know who the acts were - but they were all outstanding. The clown was brilliant and so were the acrobats and aerial acts, but the animal acts were by far... More

This is the old Moscow circus and it specializes in high wire balancing and animal acts. Children love it and it was packed when we went there. We are ancient but loved every minute of iy too.
