Christmas dinner for UPJŠ Erasmus students
This Thursday (6.12) one of our universities – Pavol Jozef Šafárik University (UPJŠ) – organised an Xmas dinner for Erasmus students from UPJŠ. ESN Košice was asked to join and prepare some programme for our students, we said YES, of course, and enjoyed a cheerful evening with a traditional Slovak Christmas soup – Kapustnica.
We introduced our Erasmus students to Slovak traditions and costumes and last but not least to typical Christmas meals that we are all looking forward to. Afterwards we asked them to tell us something about the traditions in their countries – Turkey, Romania, Poland... So we had a nice chat while enjoying Kapustnica.
As a pre-Chrismas gift our University gave every Erasmus a book about our city in English.
The Dinner was a success, we got a lot of possitive feedback and we still get asked for that nice cake that was served - štrúdľa.
