Chisinau circus will be restored with the EU support
European Union supports restoration works at Chisinau Circus according to international standards. The project is carried out in the framework of the EU Confidence Building Measures Programme, implemented by UNDP. In this context, the Minister of Education Corneliu Popovici paid a working visit to the Circus in Chisinau.
According to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research, the Chisinau Circus building has undergone a complex technical expertise. The experts evaluated the technical state of the building, the roof, the basements, the exterior walls, etc. Based on the results of the technical expertise, a competition will be organized at the beginning of 2020, to carry out repair works of the Circus.
The essence of the concept consists in preserving the Circus as a heritage building and transforming it into a large cultural and educational center, respectively, into a multipurpose institution that will mainly focus on performing circus shows and will provide various cultural and educational services: gala concerts of great artists, organizing national and international festivals / fairs, organizing large-scale festive events, etc.
The EU Confidence Building Measures Programme, implemented by UNDP, contributes to building confidence among the inhabitants from both banks of the Nistru River by involving them in joint projects.
