The Great Moscow State Circus was opened on 30th of April 1971. It was designed and built under the guidance of I. Belopolsky. Its impressive auditorium is an enormous 36 meters tall and can seat up to 3,400 people. So in just over two months time, it will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
It is also the birthday of DMITNY KOLDUN, who represented BELARUS at the 2007 Eurovision song contest and got them their best position ever at Eurovision.
