ERASMUS-Meeting in Kosice: Day 2
On the 17th of October our students were brought to Obchodna Akademia, our partner school in Kosice by their host sisters. Our programme started on 8 o'clock with a presentation about Slovakia followed by a school tour. After a short break our first workshop began. All students were devided into international groups. During this workshop they had a focus on the SWOT-Analysis. Afterwards all teams presented the results of their SWOT-Analysis of Conditions of Farming and Agricultural Entreneuerial Activities, which they had already prepared at home. After lunch we were walking to the city centre for sightseeing. Kosice is the biggest city in eastern Slovakia and in 2013 it was the European Capital of Culture. With a population of approximately 240.000, Kosice ist the second largest city in Slovakia. The city has a well-preserved historical centre, which is the largest among Slovak towns. We were very impressed by Slovakia's largest church, the St. Elisabeth Cathedral. Although it was raining we enyojed the long main street with many heritage protected buildings in Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau styles. Thank you for this well organised guided tour. Kosice is really a wonderful city!
