Yellow Dragon Gymnasium


Yellow Dragon Gymnasium or Huanglong Gymnasium is an indoor arena seating 8,000 people, which was officially put into service on 21 September 2003. It was constructed at a cost of 160 million RMB (roughly 19 million USD).[1] The arena can accommodate figure skating and ice hockey, as well as a variety of indoor sports. It is also used for music concerts.

It is adjacent to the stadium in the northeast direction. This was originally designed by Soviet experts in the 1950s and endorsed by Later Premier Zhou Enlai. When Zhou Enlai visited Hangzhou in the early 1970s, he repeated this plan to local officials.
