Euro 2012

As Ukraine prepares for the Euro 2012 football tournament they are adding runways terminals and new hotels in every host city. Pre ticket sales have begun online and the stadiums are busy with construction. 9 new hotels will be built in Kiev for the Euro 2012 tournament. Runways have received work in Lvov and roadways will soon be busy with construction around all the city's hosting the tournament. Nato will help prepare and run security for the tournaments held in Ukraine and Poland. Tickets for the event in Kharkov will serve as travel documents. Even the police in Kiev are being given lessons in basic English to help visitors for the event. I just hope they don't try to get to many bribes and give Ukraine a bad reputation.

This tournament should give tourism a much needed boost in Ukraine.
