participant of the excursion
- My husband and I went on an excursion in cold weather year in winter. Most clearly I remember the very moment when we entered a huge empty - and most importantly, green - field. Such a crazy contrast with the Moscow winter. Uninhabited stands line up around, and this strange sensation of emptiness, atypical of the stadium, is fascinating. By the way, the cold inside the stadium was not felt in winter.
It seemed that there the temperature was slightly higher than on the streets.
Address: Moscow, Volokolamskoe sh. 69, the stadium "Discovery Arena".
