The most warm-hearted friendship appeared between Hollander and Kharkiv citizens, who went for the teams of each other till the last minute. Everybody cheered up in the fan zone at the biggest square in Europe - guests and citizens dressed in orange colors drank beer, took pictures with each other, sang sounding "Viva Hollandia!", and somebody has even found here his love.

In the first colorful Dutch march from the fan zone to the stadium (about 5 km) only foreign guests took part. And already in the third march thousands of Kharkiv citizens joined them!
