Be at the fascinating world in the land of Circus this fall and during the season of winter!

personally been invited to the rehearsal performance and this is what I surely wish to update to the Circus lovers!

The Fall is here again and the young and old can fall in love again with the cavalcade of attractions: balancing on ladders, parrots, sea lions, baboons and a bunch of animals right from the fields from the farmland and of course a circus cannot be a circus without a „Clown”!!!

So the new show is on at the Capital’s Grand Circus.

The Circus Cavalcade begins on September, 22  7.p.m. with international stars and Hungarian circus artist presents the young talents to its circus lovers.

One of the highlight performances was by László Simet, the high-wire artist whose performance was breathtaking at the London Olympics August, 12. during the closing ceremony. To-day, I mean yesterday he was here, back in his homeland and this time he made us hold our breath performing on the „Death Wheel”. For minutes the audience surely kept their breath.

Being at the circus cavalcade, seen the audience had a wonderful time seeing the Russian balancers swaying with their ladders, the parrot show, sea lions copying their trainers gestures, baboons and pets running in-and-out.

The program heated up with the Kenyan Athuma Zulu acrobatic group who were busy spinning to the African beats. The Duo Icaria footed members came both all along from Ethiopia. Don’t know if they made it all along on the way barefoot … anyway they gave an awesome show. They have been traveling all over the world and at the Lido in Paris the audience just didn’t go of them, stood up and clapping their hands till it got red. The Franco and Adele’s basketball parrot and standing clapping seals, rolling on the floor were just perfect time for the kids to have their little giggles. Maike and Jörg Probst pet production of a Grimm fairy tale, inspired by a German couple is unique in the European arenas. The Swiss Robert Noah‘s jumps the heights on the swinging trapeze were just as heavenly as his heights, superb performance.
At the circus cavalcade of course there were out in the arena the young Hungarian talents: the dazzling  juggler  Olivér Zsilák, the Black Roses were rolling-and-rolling on their unicycle and the awesome Diamond Troupe on the straps. 

Dates to be kept in mind for September:

Saturday, September 22 – 7 p.m. Sunday, September, 23  – 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, September, 26. –  3 p.m. Thursday , September 27  – 2 p.m. Friday, September 28 – 3 p.m. Saturday, September 29 – 11 a.m., 3 p.m., 7 p.m. Sunday, September 30 – 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

    Could you tell me if there are any shows in mid to late December or even the first few day in January? I would love to see a show but cannot seem to find any during the time of our visit. Thank you for your assistance.


    • Hello Jodie … as ya were wondering what/where to go and see in Budapest… well there is too much going around throughout the year, but as for shows there is the Capital’s Circus, Opera House and concerts at the Art Palace all in Budapest. Incase of rollinginbudapest keep on reading below some places that might be of interest to ya… Hungary is rich with culture and the Turkish influences make it one of the most exotic European countries. It’s capital city — Budapest — boasts beautiful skylines, rich cuisine and a vibrant nightlife, while still being budget-friendly. Thus, a traveller’s dream.

      1. Goulash: You haven’t had goulash until you’ve had it in central Europe. A bowl of this hearty Hungarian soup sees warm chunks of beef fall apart in your mouth, after sizzling in a broth of garlic infused onions with a dollop of sour cream on top.
      2. Gozsdu Udvar: Speaking of food, go here. The Gozsdu Udvar strip is patio heaven in the summer months — the perfect place to sip on palinka under a sea of hanging lanterns. Night vibes here are not to be missed. In this stretch of restaurants you’ll find some classic Hungarian dishesn.
      3. The Churches: There are dozens of captivating churches in Budapest but the largest in the capital is St. Stephen’s Basilica. There is so much visible architectural diversity because it was worked on by three different artists. The most unusual design component of this church is the 12 zodiac signs built at the main entrance.
      Crossing the Chain Bridge to get to Pest will bring you to both a panoramic view of the Buda side of the city. On the Buda side may visit the Matthias Church. This neo-gothic creation features seven colorful towers and was once converted into a mosque when the Turks invaded.
      4. Vintage Shopping: Hungary is a place for not only hipsters. Many boutiques lined on the east side of the Danube. Downtown at the Fashion Street,may find Hungarian designers cloths. A must-visit if you’re in District V.
      5. The ruin bars: This nightlife trend is unique and throughout the year on in Budapest. The ruin bars are originated from the Nazi occupation which left many old buildings abandoned, too expensive to restore. Many still have worn facades, but the interiors have been redecorated with vintage findings, art on the walls and furniture hanging from the ceilings. Located in at District VII., the Old Jewish Quarter, Szimpla Kert was once named the third best bar in the world by Lonely Planet. Entrance is always free at the ruin bars.
      6. Famous baths: Known as the City of Baths, Budapest remains one of the only places to offer traditional Turkish baths. The country itself sits on hundreds of thermal springs that feed the bathhouses in Budapest. Szechenyi is the largest medicinal bath. The Rudas is historically rich as one of the oldest constructed. The Gellert termal bath is also popular by the foreigners stay in the city. May enjoy time at an evening bath at the Lukacs where there is a great view of the River Danube.
      7. Deak Square: Every traveller needs some Downtime and this is the place to find it. The three main metro lines converge here. Also enjoy the advent fair in the air.

      Hope these infos are in help of finding what ya are looking for…. wishing ya an excellent time rollinginbudapest 🙂
