Stadion Gradski vrt – Osijek, Croatia

Stadion Gradski vrtThe next Croatian track is located in the city of Osijek, and found at Stadion Gradski vrt.  This stadium might hold the record for time between start of construction and opening.  They started to build Stadion Gradski vrt in 1949.  In 1980, 31 years later, it finally opened.  The original track was red, but switched to blue during a renovation done in 2005.  It is unclear if they actually resurfaced the track or just painted it.  Both D-zones here are also blue, and that is where you will find all of the field events.  This is another stadium that has a great 360-degree virtual tour, with views from multiple locations inside.  Click HERE to see it.
