German Ambassador to Ukraine: Lviv has conquered hearts of our nation's fans
"In fact, the hearts of German fans have rushed to Lviv. It appeared before them in such a friendly state, clean and open the world, which caused a wave of desire to remain for the second match involving Germany," he wrote on his blog on the Ukrainska Pravda online newspaper.
He said that many Germans who did not initially plan to attend another Euro 2012 group match in Ukraine, "in an outburst of feeling, decided to watch the Germany-Denmark game, and they did not regret it."
"Residents of Lviv were openly happy about the visitors and showed this during the games. Some Germans felt in Lviv that the summer fairy tale of 2006 had been called back into their memories," he wrote, referring to the FIFA World Cup, which was held in Germany from June 9 on July 9, 2006.
