Why you should visit it
The beginning of the Russian National Circus started in Saratov in 1873 when Dmitriy, Akim and Peter Nikitin, three brothers, three acrobats from Saratov, became the first Russian circus entrepreneurs. They were great innovators – instead of temporary marquees they decided to build a stationary building, and they did it in 1876.
