Volgograd State Circus

Volgograd State Circus was built by the general contractor trust “Volgogradstroy” on a special project developed by the institute “Volgogradgrazhdanproekt”. The main architect of the project is the Honored Architect of the Russian Federation Ye.V. Dynkin. The building was opened in 1967. The Volgograd Circus building is an original architectural treasure. The auditorium accommodates 1840 seats, spacious vestibules and foyers, convenient viewing galleries, allowing viewers during the intermission to breathe fresh air – all this perfectly prepares for the perception of the circus performance. The very first director of the Volgograd Circus was the honored worker of the Russian Federation M.M. Psalti, who stood at the very origins of this circus and directed its design and construction.
