21st of April 2017 Erasmus students from University of Economics in Bratislava with their ESN members started very adventurous trip. And which part of Slovakia is the best for adventure? Undoubtedly Eastern Slovakia!
Firstly they visited Košice where they met with us, local ESN members from Košice and we were pleased to be their tour guides and show them beauties of our city. It wasn´t only about sightseeing. They could also try local cuisine and nightlife in Košice.
Next day they decided to explore world heritage of Slovakia in small historical town called Bardejov. After short tour around the town and great lunch, there was time for relax in Bardejov SPA wellness. Our guests had opportunity to taste typical sweet wafers and healing mineral water from Bardejov SPA and they also visited Open air museum which presents life of our ancestors in typical village with wooden houses. They really liked it!
And last day of their trip was also connected with places inscribed in UNESCO. Our friends visited next historical town Levoča and Spiš castle where they finished their Eastern Slovakian adventure and without energy but with lots of memories they could return back to our capital!
This trip wasn´t adventurous only because of craziness of local people from East part of Slovakia. All participants of the trip were divided into groups which had to fulfil some funny tasks during whole trip. For example, they had to find out how local people in Košice call the wind, how many stairs leads to tower of St. Egidius Basilica or they had also competition in singing typical eastern slovakian song „A od Prešova“.
Erasmus students from Bratislava really enjoyed this trip and we are happy that we could help them to spend nice time in our beautiful East Slovakia. We were also very pleased to see our ESN friends again and share new ideas or generally strengthen our friendships.
ESN is one big family and we want to help each other, so we all hope to meet each other during some other interesting event soon again. No matter which section will arrive to Košice, we will gladly help them to spend nice time here in Eastern Slovakia.
Furthermore, thanks goes to members of ESN EUBA for organising this Eastern Trip and for sending an application for Section of the Month for ESN KE. They nominated us as a vote of thanks for being their hosts. We appreciate it and one more time we repeat: „Feel free to visit us anytime you want! ESN KE is ready to welcome any other ESN section in Košice!“
