Luzhniki Stadium, conceived in 90 days and built in 18 months, has seen dozens of historic tournaments in its 60-year history. Luzhniki will be hosting the opening gala and the first game of FIFA World Cup 2018 between Russia and Saudi Arabia. The architects had three months to complete the design, and the workers had another 15 months to build the complex. The whole thing, comprising the central stadium, small arena, sports palace, swimming pool, and some other facilities, had to be finished in just 450 days (Video credit: Perform)
