Krakow Awaits Euro 2012

| |
  
Michel Platini, the UEFA President, announced the decision of the Executive Committee. Poland and Ukraine have been chosen to host EURO in 2012. Games will be played in four Ukrainian cities (Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Kiev and Lviv) and four Polish venues (Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw and Wroclaw).
 
Krakow is listed as reserve venues. "On the one hand, I am very happy about Poland getting the right to organise the Euro 2012, but on the other it is a scandal that we are on the reserve list. Our sports and hotel infrastructure is among the best-prepared," complained Jacek Majchrowski, Cracow's mayor. He hopes that either one of the selected cities resigns or does not make the necessary investment on time.
 
Euro 2012 will give the economy an extra impulse for growth, while the politicians and businessmen will have to make sure UEFA's high standards are met in a relatively short period of time. The European Championship is a great chance to create a positive image of the country. We must do everything to make the fans visiting Poland remember good matches, as well as the fact that our country is friendly, interesting and modern.
 
Krakow is the cultural capital of Poland, located in the south of the country. This is the main place in Poland to host music events, film and theatre festivals, exhibitions in contemporary art galleries and museums. Krakow is also the capital of Polish humour, where Polish stand-up comedians perform. The best known football club of the city is Wisla Krakow.
