Pageantry of Euro 2012 Warsaw Opening Day

This short video (shot entirely on June 8, 2012) encapsulates the festive nature of Warsaw during the opening day of the Euro 2012 Warsaw football (soccer) championships. Co-hosting with Ukraine, Poland’s capital city was well prepared for guests ensuring plenty of public transportation for fans to get to the big game, and open areas with large screens so revelers could watch Poland play Greece.
