Romfilatelia has issued a new set of stamps dedicated to circus. The images illustrate the atmosphere specific to circus performances meant to entertain the audience.
The history of the Romanian circus started in 1874 in Bucharest when the first autochthonous circus Sidoli Circus was set up.
The period between 1960 and 1970 was beneficial for the development of the acrobatic art, juggling and, implicitly, the circus show. The Romanian jugglers were highly appreciated by the audience on the stages of many countries performing as skilled acrobats, tightrope walkers, and illusionists.
