Goal.com will tell you everything you need to know about the European Championship's impressive stadiums and host cities

Wroclaw will be the unofficial home of the Czech Republic during Euro 2012, with all three of their Group A matches taking place in the Polish city.

On Friday, Michal Bilek's side will face Russia at the Municipal Stadium, before taking on Greece four days later and then finishing up on June 16 against co-hosts Poland, all at the very same 40,000-capacity venue.

The city is renowned for being tossed around up until 1945, having been part of Poland, Bohemia, Austria, and Prussia before finally settling on Polish rule as a result of border changes following the end of World War II.

A noteworthy face from the region many are familiar with is Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron, Germany's most celebrated fighter pilot and arguably the most famous of air combatant of all time. He was born when the city was known as Breslau, Germany.
