Dzien dobry! Greetings from the capital of Poland, Warsaw! I’m studying in University of Warsaw at the faculty of management. I’ve been a couple months here and the time has been awesome. I’ve met some new amazing mates and experienced a lot in so little time. At the end of September I was really excited about the incoming semester in Helsinki Airport.
There were several issues with my courses in my faculty and I had to do my Learning Agreement again. But thanks for the crew in the local international relations office, it was really easy to handle these issues. I had only about 3 classes in a week so this hasn’t been so demanding for me compared to Finnish education. But this is totally ok for me because there’s more time to experience the Polish culture. Pierogis (Polish cuisine) for example!
I’ve already made couple trips during my stay here. First we went to see the infamous concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau and then headed to beautiful city called Cracow. Later we went to see different country Czech Republic and its capital Prague and headed back to Poland and spent one night in Wroclaw. Both of these trips were organized by Erasmus Student Network ESN.
People really should get rid of their prejudices about Poland because this is amazing and really underrated country. There are so many things to see! Of course Warsaw isn’t the most beautiful city in the world because the marks of wars are still available to see around here. On the other hand there are beautiful skyscrapers and modern shopping malls that have the latest brand retailers. I can recommend Poland everytime when someone is planning a city holiday! Na Zdrowie!
