The Great Moscow Circus was opened in 1971, and this circus is considered one of the largest circuses in Europe – its seating capacity is 3.4 thousand. Five rotated stages equip the ring – water, rink, lighting effects, horses’ and interactive. Design for the building was made in functionalism style in the form of the glazed pavilion.
