Ukraine is working on a solution to solve the shortage of accommodation during the Eurovision Song Contest week in May. The administration of the song contest plans to solve it by placing a tent town on Truhanov Island (pictured) in Kyiv.
The Eurovision Song Contest fans visiting Kyiv will be offered orange tents. According to Taras Stetskiv, the director of National TV Company of Ukraine, the tent town will remind of tent towns on rock festivals and offer accommodation to approximately 10 000 people.
The organizers hope that “young people will settle there with gladness.” Besides, this tent town will remind the revolution, as some tents were standing on Majdan. The tent town should mainly be a solution for the guests for whom the hotel prices in Kyiv are too expensive, both for foreigners as for people living in other parts of Ukraine.
Ten thousands of people will be visiting Kyiv in May for the occasion of the 50th Eurovision Song Contest.
