Volgograd Arena Stadium - 2018 FIFA World Cup
Volgograd Arena Stadium is located in the historical center of the city at the foot of the memorial complex “Mamaev Kurgan”, next to the Central Park of Culture and Recreation. The Stadium was built in 1962. But not long time ago it was re-designed and rebuilt for the championship almost from scratch.
If you look at the stadium from above, the stairs leading to it and the landscaped area nearby form a five-pointed star. This is a tribute to the hero-city and victory in the greatest battle of the Second World War.

Address of the nearest building to the Volgograd Arena Stadium is Prospect Lenina 76. But the same as with all others stadiums, it will be impossible to reach stadium and park a car near it if you don’t have a special pass. That’s why I’d advise you to go to the match by public transport or taxi.
