The Circus of Tirana was created in 1952 by renowned Albanian artists: Telat Agolli, Bajram Kurti, Juzepina Prendi (Shkurti), Bardhyl Jareci and Abdyl Karakashi. His giant quest is still near Zogu I Boulevard, near Tirana’s chariot. Circus has had its most successful years during the communist regime, and has been struggling in 1990-2010 when staff were reduced.
The United Nations funded some circus activities in 2010 and the Circus of Tirana has added activities and performances. The Circus of Tirana is under the administration of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, Youth and Sports. Circus is known as the place that employed the most famous Albanian athletes as its employees. Today performs performance every week, on Sundays, and is still popular despite the economic difficulties it faces.
