The excursion to Štramberk was organized in collaboration with the International Relations Office and the Buddy team on May 25th, and it was a memorable day for all of the students, including the Czech friends, Erasmus students, and even a coordinator.

Our day was not a typical bright day, but rather a dramatic day with a lot of rain that even an umbrella couldn't keep us dry. After debating whether or not we should go, the majority of us decided that we weren't made of glass and that we would embark on a collective adventure! Despite the fact that it was a rainy day, the journey went off without a hitch.

The city centre, caves, and a church were all visited throughout the day. International students learned about the area's history, toured historical sites, and tasted the famed Štramberk ears (a Moravian confectionery product made of cone-shaped gingerbread dough). We tasted these biscuits at a nearby cafe where we were having tea.

For the international students, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and they were astounded to learn about the Štramberk ears' backstory. Lunch was consumed in one of the ancient restaurants, which served delectable cuisine. It was an excellent opportunity for international students to learn about Czech culture and history. As a result, it was a day full of adventure and discovery.
