Kyiv, Ukraine @ GoKiev.info

Kiev / Kyiv..... one of the greatest cities in Europe. Honore de Balzac, the famous French novelist, wrote: "Petersburg is a young city, Moscow is an ancient city, but Kyiv is the eternal city. It is a Northern Rome."

Welcome to GoKiev.info - What to do in Kiev (Kyiv): Stadiums.

Start Stadium, Kyiv, Ukraine

     There are not so many good stadiums in Kyiv. The main of them are: Olimpiys'ky, Dynamo, CSKA, Obolon'. There are several smaller stadiums like: Start, Spartak, Obolon, Avangard, Rusanovets', etc. Some of these stadiums are not modern, sometimes they look neglected and old. Lots of them are not used according to their main purpuses anymore. Locals use them like places to spend some time with friends over a bottle of beer bought at the nearest kiosk or small stores. Teenagers go to such stadiums to rollerskate and elder people like to do their morning excersises or jog over there.

      Poland and Ukraine were given the right to jointly host the Euro 2012 tournament by a UEFA committee on April 18, 2007. So thanks to this event, a lot of stadiums in Ukraine, including the main one Olympic Stadium will be rennovated. The Olimpiysky Stadium in Kiev is scheduled to host three group matches, one quarterfinal and the final during the summer of 2012.

Start Stadium (former Zenit)

Start Stadium, Kyiv, Ukraine

     This stadium is famous for its history. The football game between the Soviet football team "Start" (it included players from "Dynamo" and "Locomotive" clubs) and German team "Flakelf" (which included German pilots and antiaircrafters) was held in Kiev occupied by fascists on a stadium “Zenith” (now “Start”) on the 9th of August, 1942. Football team "Start" won the game, and 4 Ukrainian football players were killed afterwards. Later historians gave this game the name “Match of death”. For a long time it was believed that players were killed by nazis because "Start" won the game. But later, after the long investigation, which lasted a little over 30 years, the investigation commision didn't find any connection between the victory in the match and the death of the Ukrainian football players.

Address: 28, Marshala Rybalko Street, Kyiv, Ukraine. Nearest Metro Stop: Lukyanivs'ka (green line).
