The best, the most interesting and the most wonderful performance, what I've seen in my life. Approxiamiately for 2:30 hours long performance only 3000HUF for family (2 adults and 2 children). It was in 3th class near the musicians over the entrance area, from left side, door . I can recommend you this places for seating.

The circus was just perfect, everything was beautiful and great, even though the whole story was in Hungarian and we didn't understand it- the whole show was just WOW and especially the part with the lions

The circus has great performers every year we have visited. The shows are spectacular and it really doesn't matter if you don't speak Hungarian. Tickets available online before you visit. The performers are spectacular and always make you sit on the edge of your seat. Got told off for using my camera with a flash, even though the flash was... More

This is the best circus I've been. Excellent value for money. Two and a half hours entertainment. There's all sorts of acts and makes for a very good show, well worth going to see.

This was the best circus I have ever visited. The tickets were very reasonable for a Weds afternoon showing (approx £3 per adult) and I would have paid so much more. There was so much variety and all of the acts were unique and talented. There are snacks available if you having been on the move all day, and an... More

We saw a very nice show (Ludas Matyi). It was in hungarian, but there should be no issues understanding it for anyone. Check it out, really cool. Plan ahead. No tickets available on site, usually full house.

This is one of the only permanent circuses in the world host to an international circus festival in the spring. The show changes periodically so do return. Regardless of language, it is a delight for everyone. And there is not a bad seat in the house. It is an intimate venue with live music & all of the bells &... More

The talent, passion and dedication of the artists was clear to see, and the folkloric / fable aspect of the show was very interesting and enjoyable. Booking this unseen and not understanding Hungarian I was very surprised when a live elephant was introduced near the end of the show. It let the whole experience down for me and it shames... More

Great circus to watch with the kids. Although the actors speaks Hungarian its still easy to understand what is happening. The virtuoso performance is wonderful accompanied by live music. Highly recommended!
