Going to the circus is a real spectacle hear in Russia! Whereas the rest of the world has implemented strong regulations on animal presence in circuses, in Russia everything is still possible. This immediately astonishes you when you see the (drugged out) panthers lining up for pictures with the little visitors before the show starts. Even though it all might be a bit questionable and sad, "experiencing Russia's culture" is the perfect excuse to go these impressive performances, with animal tricks, acrobats and clowns. Make sure you buy tickets up front by going there or ordering at ticketland.ru.
