Poljud Stadium, which is the home of Croatian football side Hajduk Split, has officially been declared protected cultural property of Croatia…

Poljud stadium, which was built in 1979, has just been included in the Register of Protected Cultural Goods in Croatia by the Ministry of Culture.

Taking its name from the neighbourhood of Poljud, the stadium designed by architect Boris Magaš is located on the northern side of the Split peninsula. It was originally built for the 1979 Mediterranean Games and now home to iconic Dalmatian club Hajduk Split. As well as football matches, the stadium also hosts concerts and other events. It was the venue for 1990 European Athletics Championships and hosts Ultra Music Festival.

Its impressive seashell-like roof structure which spans 215 metres makes it a recognisable feature of the Split landscape.
