“Didn't see this in any travel book - but LOVED it! Not to be missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

While visiting Kiev, our friends took us to the circus. The acts change often and it was really well done. The acts are varied and all of us had a great time. The Ukraine outfits are noteworthy and the acts even included a boxing kangaroo that our kids loved.
