There, will be outdoor performances, a gastronomic area and many other possibilities to spend pleasant hours before departure to the stadium ".

Furthermore, to support the supporters and all tourists there will be 50 volunteers who speak perfect Spanish and who will be able to provide any kind of information. Volunteers will be able to be easily identified because their T-shirts say: "Pregunta me" (“Help me!”).


Without a doubt, for football supporters, Wednesday is a special one. And for Bucharest is a special day, the final being the biggest football event organized in Bucharest.


In view of this, it has developed a transport service that can make it easier to access as all points of interest. More, in sign of joy for this event, the Metrorex (Company Metro services), decided to change in this period the name of 6 stations after ”, the name of some famous Romanian and Spanish players, so travelers will hear: "Next stop ...
