"These are restaurants, cafés, shops and clubs in Kyiv, this year's host city for an international song contest."

The motto for this year's Eurovision is "Celebrate Diversity".

"The notion of celebrating diversity is at the heart of Eurovision values: it is all-inclusive and all about countries around Europe, and beyond, joining together to celebrate both our common ground and our unique differences, as well as some great music," said Eurovision executive Jon Ola Sand.

Kyiv was announced as the host city for Eurovision after Jamala won the 2016 competition with her song 1944.
