Exterior PGE Arena Gdansk Stadium (c) Avistu
I confess, I don't like football. Well, in reality it is that, like other mass phenomena, I never caught the point, I have not understood the almost sacred pleasure that his devotees enjoy on the day of the Lord, when on Sundays they worship the millionaires with the best legs in the world. But I can admire the beauty of its churches, football stadiums, especially when one visits what is considered the most beautiful stadium in Europe, the PGE Arena of Gdańsk, the home of Lechia de Gdańsk.
As a tribute to Gdańsk, the so-called City of Amber, the exterior shape and the covering of the stadium resemble a gigantic piece of amber, a material of exceptional quality when picked up at the nearby Baltic Mar. With 45 meters high, 236 meters long and 203 meters wide, the PGE Arena would be the largest amber monument in the world.
Large, and full of fan signatures, is the ball that is a few meters from its entrance. Well, it is of colossal size if we compare it with the regulations that are in showcases inside, signed not by fans but by the players of the teams here competed during the Euro 2012 held in two countries, Poland and Ukraine.
