I love circus buildings because in many of them you know which great artists have performed there. Who has walked in those corridors. Circus buildings, for me, connect circus history with our present time. They are cultural temples.
Amiens, Cirque Jules Verne
The municipal circus of Amiens in Northern France (Picardy) was inaugurated in 1887. Circuses still perform inside this historic venue.
The first circus building constructed by Paul Busch and his wife. When the Circus Renz building was offered for sale Busch bought it and moved his circus there. This building became the Schiller Theater.
In 1950 the Polish State Circus got a circus base with rehearsal rings and stables. When the State circus ceased its activities the base was abandoned but now is being restored as an children's activity park.
