    Well, the usual intimate new stadium in Ostrava. It's hard to be considered a special tourist attraction.

    A very spacious and nice arena in general. But the toilets are a design-disaster: doors open into the wrong side and very narrow space (thus it is hard to pass by for two rather slim people!), has two entries - more people thus come in and then it's even worse! Also the arena could use some signs in the corridor to indicate where the hell you are - a "You are here" sign would suffice.

    Very good athletic hall. It lacks a nice cafe or canteen to sit and have a snack during a sport event.
