Last year, BEST Nis organized a 5th cultural exchange between Nis and Turin, from October 3 to October 9. 2016.
Cultural exchange is an internal event in BEST, intended for members of this European student organization. Cultural exchange (CE) is mainly organized in order to introduce students from other countries with cultures, customs and history of other people.
The activities were composed of two parts. The first part of the exchange started on 3. October and lasted until 9. October. Then 15 selected students from the local BEST group from Turin came to Nis and we introduced them to our way of life, Serbian tradition, culture. They tasted some of the famous specialties of Serbian cuisine and introduced themselves to night life in Nis. They learned what our city is famous for, familiarized with its bountiful and inhabited inhabitants, as well as rich history, cultural heritage and historical monuments, and at least briefly felt the magic of one of the oldest cities in the Balkan. In addition to all this, they could attend various workshops and trainings that will help them to get to know and understand Serbian culture.
The second part of the cultural exchange covered the period from 4 to 10 December, when 15 selected students, members of the local BEST group from Nis, went to Turin, where they had the opportunity to get to know the beauties of their city, people, customs, language and history.
