This stadium is well worth a visit if you can manage to get over to this part of the World. The stunning gardens upon approach as good as I have ever seen !!!

Built to impress, with the modern amenities, sadly! and surprisingly! the place was poorly prepared for handicapped and elderly. Be prepared to walk 10 flights of stairs (our 83 year old GF had to!), and forget about the elevators - we were told they exist,...More

Nice and quiet place, surrounded with thousands of flowers. The Patriotic Museum is very close to the Donbass Arena, and it is a high emotion place to visit

Awesome! place! Saw France vs Germany in the 2012 Euro Cup Semi Finals here in July 2012. Back again to see Shaktar in 2013.. A great football (soccer) atmosphere, very different feeling from any football stadium in the US.

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

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