Euro 2012 will be held on 8 different cities in Poland and Ukraine. There are Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw, and Wroclaw (Krakow) in Poland and Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kyiv, and Lviv in Ukraine. Yesterday I’ve shared the information of Poland, and today I’ll go with the information of Ukraine. 🙂
It located on the South-East part of Ukraine. It’s a highest HIV prevalence case in Ukraine. Nearby to Russia.
It’s located on the South East part of Poland too, and it’s above Donetsk. It’s a second largest city in Ukraine. The city was founded in 1654 and was a major centre of Ukrainian culture in the Russian Empire. Kharkiv became the first city in Ukraine where the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was proclaimed in December 1917 and Soviet government was formed.
Kharkiv became and remained the capital of the Ukrainian SSR until 1934, when the administrative capital was moved to Kyiv.
