On the 16th of February at Ludovisko, a restaurant near University of Gdansk, there was a welcome party for international students. The event started with a speech of Vice-Rector for Research and Foreign Cooperation Prof. Piotr Stepnowski who greeted all the guests and opened the party. Then participants were welcomed by The Song and Dance Ensemble JANTAR in the traditional Slavonic way, with bread and salt.
Jantar performed several regional dances and songs, including polonaise, a popular Polish dance.
After official welcome, students stayed on an unofficial party and had fun with officers from UG Rectorate.
