Atatürk Olympic Stadium

Atatürk Olympic Stadium is a stadium located in Istanbul, Turkey. Its purpose was to help Istanbul to host the Olympic Games in 2008. Unfortunately, this did not have the expected effect and Beijing was the host of these Olympics. The construction began in 1999 and was inaugurated in 31 of July 2002 on the occasion of Galatasaray SK - Olympiacos CFP soccer game. The stadium has a capacity of approximately 80,000 seats and is the largest in Turkey.
Since only the two main tribunes are visible from the outside, the stadium looks completely open seen from the north-south axis. The design of the tribunes stresses the feeling of openness and an open space separates the main tribunes from the lower ring of continuous tiers. Moreover, it is very interesting that the main tribunes gradually heighten towards the centre. The main tribune at the west side has two levels completely separated one from the other and it is higher than the main tribune at the east side that has one level only and its profile is less curved than the west side tribune.
The Atatürk Olympic Stadium was granted the "5-star sports complex" title by the UEFA in 2004, enabling it to host the finals of UEFA events. As a matter of fact, one of the most interesting finals took place here. It is about the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final between A.C. Milan and Liverpool F.C., played on May 25, 2005. The IAAF and IOC also certified the stadium as a first-class venue for track and field, and has hosted several European athletic competitions.
Legacy Ottoman Hotel is a five star hotel located in the historical heart of Istanbul. It offers luxury and Byzantine elegance at prices starting from 75 euro.
