Kiev - the host of the eurovision song contest 2017 welcomes all the fans and press with a lovely sunny weather. The city is getting more and more ready for the grand final on 13th may. Everywhere people are working on fixing the last thing around the arena. Maybe different to other nordic hosts of the last years Kiev seems to be a even more proud host. There are this thousand details all over the city e.g. beer bottles with the eurovision logo in the supermarket.
Kiev is prepared, maybe also not this perfect way nordic cities were the last years, but on a very natural way. Arriving at the airport there is a welcome point, which looks a bit busy and not well organised, but it changes immediately, when the volunteers smile to you and show a big effort to help.
One of the best things for the press for sure are the prices for food, drinks and taxi. Just to give a idea, in the euroclub the local beer costs 1,37 Euro. And by the way, thats three times more expensive comparing with the supermarket.
See some first impressions of KIEV the host city and stay tuned to get a first review of the rehearsals.
