In 1891 the circus in Budapest was opened. It was not a tent circus, but a permanent circus giving people a show throughout the entire year. Since then there has always been a circus in the City Park, though the building giving home to the circus today has only been there since 1971. The main programs are from January till August and from October till December. There is a break in September. The audience can usually see 3 main seasons; from January till middle of March, from the beginning of April till the end of August and from the middle of October till the end of December.
The building today is in great need of renovation, but inside the show still goes on, so if you just pass by the entrance and sit down you can expect to enjoy the next hours of your life.
