Thank you for sharing the photos. Donetsk seems to be a very clean and attractive city. The stadium is beautiful, and the plazas and monuments are impressive.

Great pictures, as a native Kievlyanin, it's always nice to see pictures of other Ukrainian cities. Although you're obviously wrong about Donetsk being the capital of Ukrainian football

Thanks! But if you are native Kievkyanin - why you wrote here by English, and not by Ukrainian or Russian?

Really? Do you think I'm wrong? I don't think so. In old Ukrainian football history (before the new century) maybe you was right, but in modern history (after 2000 year) the capital of Ukrainian football changes. And if to say seriously, in Kiev nobody interested in football. The FC "Dynamo" stadium never been full.
I can say a lot about Ukrainian football, but this thread not about that

Haha, we'll agree to disagree. I will say it's nice to have some competition. It was getting boring winning all those titles all by ourselves

Yes, I see, we are fans of different "monsters" of Ukrainian football And now it's really dangerous situation for Dynamo in this season - they could be the third place only. What do you think?

And I'll continue my thread about Donetsk

Near the central market of Donetsk:

Nice autumn shots from Donetsk!

PS. Do you have any shots of Donetsk trolleybuses? I would like to see them if you have that photos.

Thanks and greetings from cloudy and rainy city of Gdynia in the north part of Poland. I'll wait for more photos from you.
