Sixth meeting in Budapest, Hungary

We have just come back from another Comenius project meeting. This time our destination was Hungary where we spent 5 unforgettable days. Budapest greeted us with lovely sunshine and splendid architecture and the students and teachers from Szent-Gyorgyi Albert Iskola went to great lengths to keep us busy and satisfied. Apart from taking part in a dance workshop and learning Hungarian songs, we had a chance to visit the Museum of Etnography and the Parliament, we could see the beautiful panorama of the city from the tower of Szent Istvan Basilica and the top of the Gellert Hill, we admired Budapest by night during a river cruise, and we could also sew our own leather wallets and purses. Our hosts showed us a great zoo in Budapest, the Buda Castle, the Heroes Square and many other intersting places.We will definetely remember the Comenius' Got Talent and the farwell karaoke party, as well as the official visit at the district Town Hall. We can also surprise you with a few titbits...Do you know that Władysław Jagiełło (a Polish king) was crowned in Budapest or that soups are as popular in Hungary as they are in Poland? Do you know that the Hungarians are great fans of salty snacks even while having a coffee or do you know the history of the long lost shoes at the bank of the Danube river? We do!
