Gospin Dolac - Croatia There is nothing more remarkable about this seater stadium in Croatia other than where it’s situated. Nestled at the top of a mountain it is surrounded by cliffs, a century fortress and deep blue lake.
Kantrida Stadium - Croatia Croatians certainly know how to add some scenery to a sporting event, Kantrida is sandwiched between steep cliffs and the crystal blue water of the Adriatic. The stadium occasionally holds international matches and interestingly the Croatian national team have never been defeated while playing here.

Estadio Municipal de Aveiro - Portugal Built to host games for Euro 2004 the stadium is awash with different shapes and colours - even the seats are random multi-colours to give a buoyant appearance. Using just about every colour of the rainbow the stadium looks like a spacecraft painted by Picasso.

Gelredome - Holland Vitesse Arnhem’s home, The Gelredome, may not look as surreal as it acts. With a retractable roof games can be played in any type of weather but more fascinating is the fact that the pitch can be retracted below the stand should it require uninterrupted sunlight.
Munich Olympiastadion - Germany Formerly the home of Bayern Munich, Olympiastadion was designed with large sweeping canopies of acryllic glass and steel cables to imitate the landscape of the Alps.
