during which I learned much about the cultural traditions of
Hungary. I enjoyed each course with all my colleagues,

"I have never imagined myself going through
the beautiful country of Hungary and
getting to know its cultural heritage as
I did during the Summer School programme.
Today, I feel pretty lucky for having done
that and I can't wait for my second trip there.
Everyone should try and visit this little
European gem and pass by the charming
city of Pécs in order to enjoy its exquisite
cuisine and meet its lovely locals!"
