EURO mascot road show: Warsaw

The newly-named UEFA EURO 2012 mascots Slavek and Slavko concluded their tour of the eight host cities by switching on Warsaw's Christmas illuminations on Saturday.

The newly-named UEFA EURO 2012 mascots concluded their tour of the eight host cities by switching on Warsaw's Christmas illuminations on Saturday.

Slavek and Slavko, whose names were revealed in Kyiv today following a public vote, turned on lights throughout the Polish capital's historic centre, including the Royal Route, which they then rode up in a horse-drawn carriage. Thousands of locals braved the wintry Warsaw weather to greet Slavek and Slavko and have their photos taken with the duo while famed Polish musicians performed and the city's mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz looked on.
