I really love the Russian circus as the artistes are highly professional and entertaining. I believe that everyone who attends the show loves it, especially the children. The lion was quite reluctant to jump from one metal wheel to the other and required some pushing from its trainer. The only ones not enjoying the show are the performing animals, I... More

Nice performances by the artistes The horse show was great. It was sad to see lions and tigers made to perform silly tricks. The chairs are a bit uncomfortable though and the snacks are over priced.

Didn't know what to expect when we went to see this circus. Three generations, grandparents, parents and tiny ones. All totally enthralled. Now confirmed addicts, can't wait for return visit.

Russian circus is world famous. The show was fabulous. The well trained animals and the great team put up a great show. The last show of the elephants made it real awesome.

A lot of fun for families. I recommend! Don't forget to get some snacks before going to the Circus. Although, they offer some in there. Last thing! Take much selfies! ;)

We took our 6 year old grandson to the circus when it was in Dundee. Fantastic show with extremely talented peformers. Excellent value for money. Loved how there was a story linking all the acts together. Our grandson says it was the best thing about his holiday. Highly recommend.
