Ball fountain Donbass Arena

Kusser Kugelbrunnen Donetsk Arena

The world's largest floating granite sphere with a diameter of 270 cm stands in front of the new Donbass Arena of FC Shaktar Donetsk in the Ukraine. Pressure of just 2.4 bar is sufficient to let the 28 tonne sphere of solid granite float weightless on its base stone. The sphere fountain was constructed to mark the UEFA EURO 2012 European Football Championship.
