Stadion Bukovyna – stadium description
Some 250km (155 miles) south-east of Lviv, just north of the Romanian border, is the city of Chernivtsi. With a quarter of million population, the city has one major stadium, used by the football side Bukovyna, with whom the stadium shares its name.
The ground was built and opened in 1967 within the city’s largest park, almost in the centre of Chernivtsi. Typically for stadia built in Eastern Europe in those days, it has elliptically shaped stands created on land slopes.
This simple and cheap form is preserved today, but not all too outdated, thanks to the 2000 redevelopment, during which it was converted into an all-seater with 12,000 seats. The stadium also boasts an impressive 15-meter wide scoreboard.
Apart from football games it also played host to concerts, including the famous Chervona Ruta festival in 1989 and its 20th anniversary repetition, with president Yushchenko in attendance.
