The Luzhniki may not be on the list of favourite stadiums for most neutral fans, but Russia's national ground is one of the largest in Europe and has been around for over 50 years.

Manchester United fans remember it fondly after they watched their team beat Chelsea there in the UEFA Champions League final in 2008, but the ground has been revamped since, turning it into a modern football temple.

The result is impressive:

Just as impressive is the state of the art Krestovsky Stadium, the new home of Zenit Saint Petersburg since last year. With a capacity of nearly 70,000 for the World Cup, it will host one of the semi-finals, as well as the third-placed play-off.

Some have suggested it looks like a spaceship, and there is a resemblance:

But perhaps the most interesting venue is the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg―which will be named Ekaterinburg Arena during the tournament.

Event organisers have even added a temporary stand for the tournament to get more people through the gates:

Welcome to amazing Ekaterinburg Arena! 😍 #WorldCup is almost here! 😆 https://t.co/pZIAbltDaz

The home of FC Ural will be the Eastern-most venue used, sitting outside of European Russia.
