Last Saturday I went spontaneous, due to the bad weather, with my friend to visit Camp Nou (New field), the big football stadium in Barcelona. He was so nervous about it, it was the high point of his visit (I always thought it was me, but OK). We took the blue metro to Collblanc and then wondered why there were no signs of the route to the 3rd biggest stadium in the world. Finally we asked some people and found it.
It was such a big area and firstly we only strolled through this places which are free. Then we were so enthusiastic and looked forward to getting inside the football stadium. We then paid 17 euro per person to get in and went to pick up the audio guide, which was an additional. I would like to know how much they earn with this but anyway we strolled through the whole stadium.
In the beginning there was a short movie in 3D where you can see the players on the field as near as if you were the referee. You can learn much about the stadium and the FC Barcelona, as the stadium Camp Nou has been the home of the club since its construction in 1957. You can visit the place where the competitors of FC Barcelona come to and have a look at the newsrooms; seating of the press during the play and look at the amazing play field from all of the different viewpoints.
It is a UEFA 5 star rated stadium and has hosted numerous international matches at senior level and UEFA Champions League finals. Camp Nou has also hosted musical performances and other non-football events. Artists who have performed at the stadium include: U2, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Madonna and many more.
It is really worth seeing and in my opinion a great experience when you visit Barcelona. The area also hosts a big fan shop with all types of products you can not even imagine. You’ll have a great day at Camp Nou, without a doubt!
