ERASMUS-MEETING IN KOSICE:DAY 3
On our third day we went by bus on a one day sightseeing trip. The first stop was at Drienovec water purification plant. Then we drove to the famous Jasov cave. This cave belongs to the most important caves of the Slovak Kast National Park. The cave reaches a length of 2 811 m with a vertical span of 55 meters. Discovering the mysterious underground of the Jasovska Rock was pretty impressive. After our tour in this cave we had the opportunity to visit an important company for the Kosice region called Kolonial, which is specialized in powder coating of metallurgical materials. Finally we stopped by an tiny water mill and iron forge in Medzev. Medzev has been know as an ironworking and blacksmithing village since 1376. The blacksmith masters were mainly Carpathian Germans. We were very surpriesed as our guide started talking German in an old Austrian dialect. In the evening all teachers met in the restaurant Zlaty Dukat. The headmaster of Obchodna Akademia Mr. Orsagh welcomed us warmly and stressed in his little speech how important international partnerships in these days are. Afterwards the Slovak team invited us to an typical Slovakian autumn dinner - goose with red cabbage and potatoe pancakes. It tasted delicious. Thank you for this very communicative and funny evening!
