It’s actually a handy guide a rough look. 

Town of Bursa in northwest Turkey is home to a 44,000-seat arena in the form of a large crocodile. 

Dwarfing the tower blocks surrounding it, the green-hued stadium contains a huge ‘mouth’ that reaches a height of 140ft (43m) that sports fans can walk into, with its body curving across the pitch.

The world, called Timsah Park, which translates to ‘Crocodile Park’ in English, opened in December 2015 after a four-year construct project that cost within the region of £8million ($8.5million). 

The design was inspired by the stadium’s home team, Bursaspor – nicknamed the ‘green crocodiles’.

In line with the YouTube channel Gran Turism Football Stadium, Timsah Park also features underground parking for greater than 640 cars, 35 catering points and 789 toilets.

In December 2017, the stadium witnessed a record attendance of 38,108, when Bursaspor played Istanbul-based rivals Fenerbahce.

And what do members of the general public think? Twitter user Gokhan Keskin described it as ‘the most effective stadium on the planet’, while ‘@FuzzyRuckus’ called it ‘epic’.

For those wishing to go to Timsah Park, it’s positioned about five kilometres from the city centre, within the north-western region of the town.
