The origin of the circus dates back to the days of ancient Rome where they used to exhibit the horses and show chariot races, staged battles, and feature trained animals, jugglers and flexible acrobats. Most of us remember the day we went to circus when we were kids and we were fascinated by the tricks done by these trained animals and artists. Amazingly, circus is one of the oldest entertainment shows that is still very much alive and kicking and still fascinates our minds with the kind of tricks we see in that circular arena.
European circus has always remained one of the most popular circuses in the world. There may be many small and big European circus companies that move from one place to another to display their talent and circus art that would leave us speechless. The acrobats and other trained artists in European circus perform death defying acts to entertain us and to make us wonder how could any human being do such a great act. Today, European circus is popular throughout the world and has their own web site too from where you can view their venue and book tickets as well.
European circus day is celebrated in many European countries and has become a great success for all the circuses in general. Organizations like European Circus Association better known as ECA has been established to promote classical circus, circus arts and culture. Today, European Circus Association looks after around thousands of European circus groups that thrive in Europe and abroad too.
Organizations like ECA not only promote European circus but they also save them from being victims of modern entertainment like television, cinema, malls and amusement parks. Many European circuses today work collectively as well to keep alive their tradition of circus.
