Earlier this month, the Euro Cup 2021 went off without a hitch. For the first time in its history, not one, but 11 separate countries, particularly in their most notable cities, agreed to host this year's league in celebration of the competition's 60th anniversary. But what about these host cities that are so special they're hosting such a huge event? Here's some interesting info about each of them! (Do note that some of these cities have already staged their respective matches as of this writing).

Baku (Azerbaijan)

Although Azerbaijan isn't exactly the top tourist destination in Europe, its capital city, Baku, is fascinating nonetheless.

A unique mix of old and new, Baku is renowned for its old-school Medieval walled-city structure whilst venturing into a more modern infrastructure as well.
