You Can Get a View From Your Seats

If you're lucky enough to score a ticket to the opening or closing ceremonies, you might not have to choose between catching the action and taking in the Russian landscape. The 40,000-capacity Fisht Olympic Stadium was designed to open on either end, offering a view beyond the playing field. In one direction, you can see the Black Sea, in the other, you'll find the mountains. After the games, the venue will be used again to host soccer teams for the 2018 World Cup.
