    Finally someone interested

    Yes, most Poles (and not only Poles) think Baltic Arena is (or rather will be) the most beautiful stadium in Poland.
    But look on the stadium project for Warsaw. If any stadium proposed in Poland is similar to the Alianz Arena, it's obviously project for Warsaw (looks like a snake in the nest with its colours and lights).
    Stadium for Gdansk looks rather like a bird nest (similar to the famous Chinese one), but is intended to look like a giant amber (also the rest of the complex are "drops of amber"), as Gdansk is the World Capital of Amber and headquarters of The World Amber Council

    if Polan build those stadiums. I say bravo and they deserved the EURO 2012 (that I had some doubts so far)... Designs are very modern and contemporary, organic some reminds me of Allianz Arena (in possitive sense)

    ... if we will not fail b/c of civil war (which broke out between the host cities and non-host cities on the first day after announcement about our victory in the bidding)

    I'm optimist on that. In our history we always were able to mobilize at 5 to 12. When it comes to punctuality we are very Greek, and when it goes to organization, we are very Italian

    At least there aren't any serious problems with the plots for the new stadiums in Warsaw and Gdansk (I don't know about Wroclaw and Poznan is refurbishing its existing stadium).

    Because the stadium in Warsaw will be National Stadium, it will be financed from the national budget in 100%. The National Stadium will be part of the National Sport Centre (a complex of stadium, hall, up to 120m high hotel end some other accompanying buildings). Project is still not known, but only the demolishing of existing stadium and preparing the plot for investment will take over half year (I guess).
