Cirque d’Hiver-Bouglione

It is the oldest surviving circus building in the world today. Opened by Emperor Napoléon the 3rd as the Cirque Napoléon, renamed later to Cirque d’Hiver which literally translates into ‘winter circus’. Circus history poors out of every nook and cranny of this elegant circus temple. The Flying Trapeze was invented and first performed in this building. Gina Lollobrigida, Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis shot the movie Trapeze in this building.
