    The countdown for the 2013 Miss Universe Competition has officially begun. The contestants have been arriving to Moscow, Russia over the past few days and have begun their Registration and Fitting Process.

    Crocus City Hall is a unique multifunctional music venue in Russia with a seating capacity of more than 7000. The arena is equipped with a state-of-the-art acoustic system, conformed to the world class standards.

    Just in a few years Crocus City Hall has become one of the most prestigious venues in the whole country as evidenced by the names of artistes on it’s stage and non-stop performance schedule.


    The uniqueness of Crocus City Hall is first of all based on its engineering design. Venue-transformer can be adjusted to the event of any type: from the world superstar’s concert to a boxing night, from a children’s show to even an ice-skating show.

    The arena is designed to have a stadium or an intimate performance atmosphere depending on the type of the show. Best technical equipment in the country is one more competitive advantage to accomplish this. That’s why promoters choose Crocus City Hall to bring such artistes like Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Sting, Sade, Ringo Starr, Scorpions, Robert Plant, Pet Shop Boys, Joe Cocker, Seal, Jamiroquai, Lana Del Rey and many others.
