Nice modern 30.000 seat aerena. Centraly located. Had the oportunity to see it both as a spectator and as player on the field. Hope to do it again every chance i get
Very modern arena with beautiful architecture. Nice, large park for children next door. Beautiful area of town that stretches along the river. Couple negatives are that 1st row is even with the field and offers very limited viewing, so sit up at least 10 rows or so. Another gripe is that the lines for the entrance can be absurdly long as there are no modern metal detectors or security scanning, only physical pat downs (which take a while). So plan to get there early if its a bigger sporting event.
It has quickly become one of the landmarks of the city. Modern architecture at it's finest. Too bad the authorities aren't too creative about organizing events here, it's not really used to its potential.
Really nice stadium with a great modern architecture. The atmosphere here made by the fans is unique.
Stadion frumos, dar personalul neprietenos.
