For those who have been to Budapest several times, and for us who live here, the two clown balloons outside the Hungarian State Circus has served as a symbol of the circus itself. A month ago or something as I drove past the circus during a guided tour I though noticed that big changes were about to take place… First the air was taken out of the clowns, and then they were removed (for good)!
It can not be considered a tragedy as the clowns did not look to nice (the building doesn’t look to nice either), but still our dear and belowed clown balloon friends has been removed. Would you like to see the before – during – after pictures? Here you go!

I’m heartbroken. So which one of the members of the Hungarian National Assembly would be put up on display as a replacement?
I think that the Circus does not look at all like a circus. The roof at least somehow has the shape of a tent however in many peoples mind a circus is red and looks like a tent. I think somehow they should rework it to look like this…
