Belarus - Minsk - Belarus State Circus
Belarus State Circus.
Sent by Tanya, a postcrosser from Minsk, Belarus.
"After the USSR nationalized circuses in all major cities, a strong love for the performing art has remained in former Soviet countries and Belarus is no exception. The beautiful rotunda of the Belarusian National State Circus, extensively renovated in 2010, right outside of Gorky Park, is a testament to how seriously the country takes its circus. Unlike the Philharmonic or the Opera, the Circus' season continues year-round throughout the summer, and performances take place multiple times a week. Bring along the little ones and sit in awe as international dancers, acrobats, magicians, and trained animals of all sorts perform for the crowds."(Source)
