One of the best stadiums in the whole world. And of course it's moderner than Allianz-Arena in Munich.

I was there for Euro 2012 - England v Ukraine (England won 1 - 0, Rooney). 6 hour train ride from Kiev to Donetsk - I'm not sure if this express train service will continue after the Euros. Grade A stadium. Difficult to get back to Kiev after the game so we went over to the Shakhtar Plaza hotel which... More

Great venue for a football game, I am sure that it would lend itself to other sporting events or music events.

The best stadium I visited during Euro 2012, with an atmosphere bettered only by Warsaw's National Stadium on the night Poland played Russia. The Stadium sits in the Donbass valley, and is part of a large parkland area which also includes the impressive war memorial and the Planetarium, i think. I was there during the Euros in June 2012.

Donbass Arena is very beautiful and interesting =) First in Ukraine "Donbass Arena" provides a unique opportunity to visit the only stadium in Ukraine category "Elite" in the guided tour. You will not only learn about the interesting facts of construction and operation of the grand sports facilities, but also to go indoors, inaccessible to the fans during the match.

Definitely one of the places you need to see. This construction is just amazing and the light show at night is breathtaking. Heaters make you forget about cold weather and will keep you warm for the rest of the football match. I support everybody and THIS IS THE BEST STADIUM IN EUROPE!

Definitely worth a visit for a match if in town. Make sure you get a night match as it looks superb lit up. Heaters under the roof to keep you warm too!!
