The Coal Town with a Beautiful Soccer Stadium

We had tickets to the semi-final game of the 2012 Eurocup. After we had watched the quarter finals in Kiev, and then several games in the Kiev Fan Zone, we loaded up on a small van and drove 700+ km to Donetsk. Entering the city we cruised past the large mountains of tailings from the local coal mines, and then past the interesting pre-Soviet, the Soviet and post Soviet architecture.

City Parks

Just off of the main street is a delightful walking park with grass, trees, planters, and sculptures. It was obvious that the locals enjoyed strolling through this park very much.

    Karl, interesting little page about your adventurous road trip to Donetsk. Brilliant photos of the stadiums here as well.- Unfortunately times have changed in the city and instead of peaceful football fans you find quite different guys there now.
