Travel & Sports


In 2023 we would have several sporting events not to be missed.

  1. The Champions League Final in Istanbul: It will take place at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium on 10 June 2023 at 21. Located in the district of Basaksehir, west of the Bosphorus, it can accommodate over 75,000 spectators. This is an excellent opportunity to visit the fantastic Istanbul and among the places not to be missed are the majestic Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, which some consider the oldest and most impressive shopping center in the world, the Suleymaniye Mosque, the Blue Mosque and its wonderful mosaics, the Basilica Cisterna, an architectural marvel and one of the most mysterious and fascinating Byzantine monuments of the city.                                                                                                                                                      
  2. Real Madrid theme park in Dubai: Sponsored by Dubai Parks and Resorts, it will most likely be called Hala Madrid! and will feature a museum, roller coaster and football skill games. The new park, complete with its own entrance gate, will be located between Motiongate Dubai and the Bollywood theme parks and is expected to open on undeveloped land in the fourth quarter of 2023. The park entrance gate overlooks the Riverland Dubai’s restaurant and shopping district in Dubai’s parks and resorts. Visitors will enjoy the audiovisual experience, interactive in the spirit of Real Madrid.                                                                                                                       
  3. The Rugby World Cup in France: The tenth Rugby World Cup will take place from 8 September to 28 October 2023, 200 years after the birth of the sport.
