MEETING PROGRAM

Sunday, 2nd October 2016: Arriving in Poland – Sightseeing in Warsaw

Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is a beautiful city which stands on the Vistula river. The historic city-center, the Old Town, is full of colors, shops, squares and many architectural attractions, like the Royal Castle. During World War II, Warsaw was razed to the ground by Nazi. However, Polish people have reconstructed their town from scratch. The paintings of Canaletto, which we can see in the castle collection, provided invaluable help in the restoration of Warsaw.

Warsaw combines the “old” with the “new”; the socialist-realist architecture with elements of capitalism. Here we see the Palace of Culture and Science. This building was built  as a “gift” from Stalin.

 

Monday, 3rd October 2016: Welcome assembly at Rejowiec – Horse riding

The Polish school welcomed all the partner schools and prepared a beautiful presentation and a song for each country.

In the afternoon we visited a farm, where we saw animals, we rode a horse, we ate sausages and potatoes, we milked a goat and we played games.
