Tuseday and Thursday were filled with loads of different workshops. Even if schedule was challenging, students were pleasured to participate.
Wednesday was provided for travelling to the capital town of Croatia, Zagreb. First stop was the House of Europe. Students were greeted by Branko Baričević, Leader of Europian comission in Croatia. Mr. Branko warned us about rights and duties of citizen, and what most of them dismiss-voting. We learned how in different ways young and elder citizens could be encouraged to vote.
Students of Gornjogradska gimnazija showed us some famous sites of the city with following interesting legends and stories.
