Message of the Ambassador of the Republic of Poland H.E. Mr. Maciej Krych



Let's enjoy EURO 2012 together


In a week from now, the National Stadium in Warsaw will resound to the first whistle of the first match of EURO 2012, a very important for both of our Nations.
The teams will compete for the title of European Champion in 31 matches which will be held on eight stadiums, four in Poland - in Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw, Wroclaw - and four in Ukraine - in Donetsk, Lvov, Kharkov and Kiev.
To carry out the UEFA EURO 2012 European Football Championship, a state-of-the-art sports infrastructure is necessary. In accordance with UEFA guidelines, stadiums where football games will take place within Euro 2012 should fulfil determined, highest quality requirements inter alia in the scope of fan service or safety and security. When in April 2007, Poland was awarded the organisation of Euro 2012, relevant infrastructure in this scope in our country was missing. Therefore, decision was made to build completely new or reconstruct existing stadiums.
Expanded City Stadium in Poznan was commissioned to use on September 20, 2010. The other 3 stadiums are completely new constructions. All four are the most modern facilities of such type in Europe.
None of the stadiums is just a facility to be used for the purposes of football competition only and none of them is intended to serve solely the purpose of Euro 2012. The facilities were designed as the so-called multi-purpose arenas, adapted for organization of events of various kinds - not only sports events, but also cultural, entertainment, business or social ones such as e.g. concerts, business events, fairs, and even weddings. Thanks to the above, these facilities will not be used just a dozen or so times a year only for the purposes of football games, but they will be teeming with life throughout a great part of the year. Therefore it will make it possible not only to effectively use the stadiums after Euro 2012, but it will also ensure generating financial profits, enabling thereby covering the costs of their maintenance.
As the Prime Minister of Poland Mr. Donald Tusk underlines, Poland has made tremendous progress in her development. Two decades ago, we were a poor post-communist country on Europe's eastern frontier. Today we are the country that has averted recession during last turmoil and become the biggest construction site in the European Union. We invite you to see for yourselves the scale of change which our country has undergone.
And there are many more reasons to visit Poland. Apart from our legendary Polish hospitality, you can discover many attractions which are still off the beaten tourist track: the Great Masurian Lake District; the Bialowieża Primeval Forest, unique in the EU; Wroclaw with its bridges and canals; vibrant and modern Warsaw; the 1000 year old Cathedral Island and the Renaissance City Hall in Poznan; and Gdansk - a pearl of Hanseatic architecture. These are just a few examples of many places worth seeing.
We have prepared an Internet site to help you find your way around our country.
