Categories / Sports/Sports and Recreation Facilities

PETROVSKY STADIUM (2 Petrovsky Island), built in 1957-61 (architect N.V. Baranov, O.I. Guryev, and V.M. Fromzel). In 1924-25 the wooden V.I. Lenin Stadium was built here (architect I.G. Langbard); reconstructed in 1934 (the seating capacity increased from 10,000 to 25,000). During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45 an artillery battery was situated on the training ground with a military unit in the locker room. In September, 1942 the Leningrad field-and-track championship was held on the stadium. During the war the wooden grandstands were partly burnt, partly dismantled for firewood. In 1980 the stadium was reconstructed (architect S. P. Odnovalov, N.D. Balazh, engineer M.E. Khristiansen), and grandstands for 22,000 spectators were built. In 1993 the stadium changed its name to Petrovsky. The sport arena consists of a football field, a 400-meter racing track and field facilities. At the main entrance, the bust of V.I. Lenin was placed (sculptor V.I. Sychev, architect S.P. Odnovalov; in 1994 the bust was transferred to the City Sculpture Museum). In 1994, the Goodwill Games were held at the stadium. Zenit amd Dinamo football clubs play here as well. Several gyms, a hotel, and other facilities are available.
