Use SP 2010 site template in SP 2013 environment

Hi! I need to use site template from my old SharePoint 2010 site in SharePoint 2013 environment.

I've created a site template in SP 2010, downloaded it to SP 2013 solutions gallery, activated it.

Then when I try to create new site my template does not show up in Custom tab of Select a template window.
Please help

SharePoint 2010 templates will have problems in a SharePoint 2013 farm. If possible, you may want to create the template in 2013 and make is as close to the original as possible.

Good luck...
