Like all big cities, Tashkent has its own circus with a history of about 100 years. It dates back to the time when artists from various European countries and Russia performed in Central Asia. At that time, semi-permanent circuses were organised by Shapito in the capital of Uzbekistan and in other cities.
The date of appearance of the real fully functional circus is considered to be 1914, which existed in Tashkent until 1966, in that year there was a terrible earthquake, which completely destroyed the circus.
After 10 years it was rebuilt, the circus was located on Khadra and in 1999 it was completely renovated. The dome of the circus, painted in the colour of the sky, can be seen from far away. The building itself was built according to the traditions of Eastern culture with wood carvings, stained glass windows with interesting patterns and ceramic mosaics.
For a long time, even before the circus was built, artists from different countries toured the park. With the appearance of its own circus, it began to fulfil its main purpose, which was to popularise national circus arts. During its existence, about 20 productions, more than 100 circus acts distinguished by their originality, were performed here.
Jugglers, acrobats and trained animals also performed here. Today, the artists from Uzbekistan tour the world with their programme. They have already performed in 30 countries in Asia and Africa as well as in European countries.
