Rostov Arena's original design blends harmoniously into the picturesque landscape. The shape of the arena's roof imitates the meanderings of the Don River. The varying heights of the stands allow spectators to savor not only what is happening on the pitch, but also to enjoy views of Rostov-on-Don. From the left bank of the Don, the city looks particularly beautiful. FC Rostov, the 2014 Russian Cup winners, will play its home games at the stadium once the World Cup finishes.
If you’re traveling from the other side of the river, look out for bus 516 or 39, both of which connect the arena with the train station. Those already on the south side can get to the stadium by train, alighting at Zarechnaya station, although a 25 minute walk still awaits from there.
