  • My favourite stadium in the country. It is great for having sport events, parties or festivals. It has everything a stadium needs to have.
  • Wonderful construction. It is used for football, rugby, concerts, diversified cultural manifestations. I like its architecture
  • Brilliant venue, watched Russia Vs Romania rugby along with 500 other hardy souls - it was minus 5!
  • Beautiful stadium, the most beautiful of Romania one could say. Nice park nextdoor, along the river and close to the center. Would highly recommend!
  • The design is nice, the VIP lounge is a joke though, dirty and it is in desperate need of refurbishing since it looks like it was rampaged by frustrated fans.
