Visit Qatar for the 24th Men’s Handball World Championship
Qatar is sovereign Arab State located on a Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of Arab Peninsula. Qatar, like other Arab countries is filled with deserts and bordering sea. The country is the richest in the world per capita.
This country like UAE started building cities in the middle of desert and these cities are something incredible. Like Dubai, Doha is another city filled with everything you need. Amazing architectures, artificial green fields, nightlife, everything you can think of.
Because of the fortune this country has, in 2015 it is the hosting country for 24th Men’s Handball World Championship. Prior to 2022 FIFA World Cup that will also be held in Qatar, this is a real test to see if this country can deal with all the pressures.

It has been started to be build for the 2022 FIFA championship. It is just 23 km away from the center of Doha. The second city is Doha and there are 2 arenas in which the matches will be played.
Lusail is the newest planned city in Qatar to be built. On just 23 km away from Doha, this will be another center of happenings in Qatar.
