IV. grammar school “Marko Marulić” from Split hosted the third mobility within the Erasmus + project “European Start-Up” from 23rd to 27th September 2019. Our guests from Portugal, Poland and Lithuania arrived late and we organized a short introduction to the school. Soon the guests went home with their hosts and settled in because a week full of fun, excursions, new experiences and acquaintances was ahead of us.

Day 1

We first introduced our guests to the contents of IV. grammar school and our education system. After that, we had an organized workshop “Market Research“, which was very interesting for all of us. As we were having fun and good time, it passed quickly. Lunch was followed by a tour of the city of Split and teacher Marijana Munitić had the role of the guide. In order to get to know our city better, the guests, with the help of their hosts, played “A Day in Split” challenge. As a part of that game, they had to find the most famous localities of the city of Split and take photos in front of them. Most of us completed the task successfully.

Day 2

On Tuesday, we headed to Dubrovnik, one of the most famous Croatian tourist destinations, and we visited the world-famous walls, which additionally interested the public because of the filming of the famous Game of Thrones series. Although the guests were delighted with Dubrovnik, the beach and the sea, they admitted that Split is still more beautiful. After lunch we headed to Makarska, and we also visited the Marian sanctuary Vepric.

Day 3

The third day we spent working. After the tour of the faculty of Economics, young students, who develop their ideas in student business incubator, told us how they came up with those ideas and how are they developing them. Then we got the task to come up with our own ideas and present them in the workshop “From idea to realization “. We have to admit that all of the groups had imaginative and high-quality ideas and they designed the way to produce them very well. We hope that some of those ideas will indeed come to life.

Also, that evening we introduced our guests to Croatian culture and tradition. Our dinner together, held at Gripe fortress, was magnified by the performance of KUD Jedinstvo who presented traditional Split dances, and the school choir of IV. grammar school “Marko Marulić“ conducted by the teacher Tomislav Veršić. After that, we occupied the dance floor and introduced our guests to some of the most famous Croatian hits.

Day 4

The next day we continued working hard making local souvenirs out of lavender. That was followed by the visit to the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and relaxing next to the beautiful view of Split from Marjan viewpoint. We continued our walk on Marjan to the zoo and then we finished the day by spending some time together and playing volleyball.

Day 5

On the last day of the journey, we introduced our guests to Skradin, Šibenik, Primošten, and the overwhelming natural beauties of Krka national park. When we returned to Split, we organized our final get-together with our guests who had to head to Split airport in the early morning hours.

We hope our guests left with beautiful memories of Croatia. We are sure we will remember this week for a long time and that from this mobility some nice and long-term friendships will be developed.
