The Ancient Roman Hockey Rink

This is awesome.

From the Croatian Times:

The Arena Ice Fever Pula MMXII is the first time anyone has ever attempted to put a professional ice rink inside an amphitheatre but there were no technical difficulties as it was a perfect fit, say organisers.

He added: “It was almost as if the Romans took it into account when they built the place 2,000 years ago, the proportions of the amphitheatre fit perfectly to the proportions of a modern ice hockey rink.”

Here is a photo gallery of the ice before the game, including some of how the ice came together in the coliseum. Below is another shot of the ice during the first game of the battles in Pula.
