Samara State Philharmonic | Circus Theatre Olympia

Samara Philharmonic Hall is the main concert hall in the city, a wonderful specimen of Art-Nouveau style. It stands on the corner of Frunze and Leo Tolstoy streets as an Art-Nouveau revival landmark reminding of the motifs of Olympia circus. In 1907 Platon Shamansky build the Olympia theatre-circus in, the by then popular in Samara, Art-Nouveau style. Apollo and Erato overlooked the entrance from above. They same statue still stands on top of the facade though now they look smaller in proportion. This because after original building was demolished in 1974 the concert hall was closed for reconstruction. After it was completely rebuild, but the new building (opened in 1987) is bigger and somewhat different, although resembles the architectural features of the original Olympia. Because the scale was upped, the original statue of Apollo and Erato now looks smaller.
