Barcelona Spain Tourist Information and City Guide

The Barcelona Olympic Stadium is a massive sports complex situated on Montjuic Hill.

The stadium was originally built for the 1929 World Expo.  It was later enlarged and completely modernized for the 1992 Summer Olympics.

The 1992 Olympics were the first post-soviet games.  Consequently, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Herzegovina and a unified Germany were able to compete as independent states.
