Stadion Strahov

The first part of the stadium was built in 1926, when most of the stadium was made of wood. In 1932 the entire wooden part, as it was originally built, was replaced by concrete cement blocks. Other big rebuildings were made in 1948 and 1975. In present days, there are 9 football grounds with standard sizes that fit within the stadium. The playing ground of the stadium measures 63 500 square meters!

The Georgia Dome, the largest cable-supported domed stadium in the world, is unique in many ways. Here are a few facts about the Georgia Dome that may surprise you.


  • A total of 8,300 tons of reinforced steel was used to construct the Dome. That is more than the weight of iron and steel used in the Eiffel Tower.

  • A 437-mile sidewalk, from Atlanta to Cincinnati, could be built from the 110,000 cubic yards of concrete used at the Dome.

  • The building covers 8.9 acres and contains 1.6 million square feet on all seven levels.

  • The 290-foot high roof is composed of 130 Teflon-coated fiberglass panels - covering 8.6 acres. The roof's supporting cable totals 11.1 miles and the Dome is as tall as a 27-story building.


  • There are 203 executive suites, 4,600 club seats, and the Penthouse Suite. The Dome's permanent seating capacity is 71,250.

  • The Dome has three times the code-required number of restrooms - all are accessible to guests with disabilities.

  • A pair of C-5 military transport planes could fit on the Georgia Dome’s floor, which contains 102,000 square feet of space.


  • 798 lighting fixtures in the roof structure provide lighting.
  • The four, 1,250-ton air conditioning units in the Georgia Dome generate enough power to cool 1,666 homes.

  • Over 600 television monitors are scattered throughout the stadium.

  • To supply soft drinks to dispensers, thousands of liquid lines wind through the stadium. These include 32,952 feet of lines (the length of 109 football fields) to feed liquids to hundreds of dispensers throughout the building, quenching the thirst of sports fans and concertgoers.

The Tokyo Dome is an air-supported dome. Air is constantly blown into the dome by a pressure fan, keeping the air pressure inside the dome some 0.3% higher than that outside, thus holding up its covering membrane. This pressure difference is equivalent to that between the 1st and 9th floor of a building and is hardly detectable by the human body. FurtherMore, in order to minimize the loss of air from inside the dome, revolving doors are used for all exits and entrances.
