Nizhny Novgorod


Citat:
None of the Volga cities, it seems, gives as strong and powerful an impression to the visitor as Nizhny Novgorod does. * Vladimir Gilyarovsky


    Founded in: 1221
    Population: 1.2 million
    Distance to Moscow: 425 km

Due to its advantageous location on the Volga River, Nizhny Novgorod developed into Russia’s key commerce centre in the 19th century. It is one of Russia’s most traditional and beautiful cities. Famous annual trade fairs attracted the country’s merchants and wealth to the city.

Nizhny Novgorod, along with its Kremlin, is beautifully situated on the hills overlooking the Volga River. The Kremlin, dating back to the 16th century, has a 2-kilometre brick fortress wall and 13 watchtowers. It stands on an elevation offering a breathtaking view of the city and its waterfront. Nizhny Novgorod is one of a hundred world cities included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Today, Nizhny Novgorod has a population of 1.2 million and continues to grow as a key business and cultural centre in Russia.

Host Cities & Stadiums


History
Nizhny Novgorod Stadium is being built in one of the city's most picturesque locations, at the confluence of the Volga and Oka rivers, near the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The area offers a wonderful view of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, situated on the other side of the Oka.

Design
Nizhny Novgorod Stadium's design is inspired by aspects of nature in the Volga region - water and wind. At the same time, given its location near the city's most historic districts, the building must have a silhouette that is restrained and severe. Its light basic structure, made up of fine triangular supports arranged in a circle, supports a semi-transparent undulating façade that conceals the bowl of the stadium. The building is surrounded by a walkway connected by stairs inclined at a tangent, highlighting the flow of the stadium. By evening, the various façades will be lit up, highlighting their plasticity and airiness.

Legacy
The stadium will be home to local club Olympiets Nizhny Novgorod.

Host City: Nizhny Novgorod
Project: New stadium
Capacity: 45,331*
Location: Confluence of the Oka and Volga rivers

Saransk


Citat:
I was also told about a people called Moksha (modern Mordovians) who lived in a prosperous land. * Guillaume de Rubrouck (account of travel to the Eastern lands,13th century)

Located in central Russia, Saransk is the capital of the Republic of Mordovia and the area where all Finno-Ugric nations began. It is one of the most pleasant cities in Russia, regularly scoring high in the All-Russia city competition in recent years. This relatively small city is actively promoting sports and has commenced construction of a new, state-of-the-art 40,000-seat football stadium.

    Founded in: 1641
    Population: 307,000
    Distance to Moscow: 650 km

Mordovia’s athletes take part in more than 100 world, European and national competitions each year.

Modern Mordovia carefully protects the unique languages and cultures of the Moksha and Erzya ethnic groups, who inhabited the area for centuries. They belong to the Finno-Ugrian group, along with the Hungarians, Finns, Estonians and others. Saransk is a frequent venue for ethnographic and folklore festivals aimed at preserving national identity, culture and customs.

Host Cities & Stadiums


History
Work on Mordovia Arena began in 2010, the 1000th anniversary of the unification of the Mordovian people with Russia's other ethnic groups. The arena will be located in the centre of the city, on the bank of the Insar river.

Design
The stadium has been designed in the shape of an oval. Its bright range of colours, combining orange, red and white, honours the distinctive colour palette of Mordovia's arts and crafts.

Legacy
After Russia 2018, some of the stadium's temporary structures will be demolished, bringing the capacity down to 25,000. This will make the arena more effective in the future, with the space vacated being used for indoor volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, as well as fitness centres. The stadium will be home to FC Mordovia.

Host City: Saransk
Project: New stadium
Capacity: 44,442*
Location: The Insar river basin
Home Team: FC Mordovia
