On the 26th of April 2010 all of the Erasmus IP participants went on an excursion to the old capitals of Lithuania – Trakai and Kernavė. Students and lecturers not only spent a lot of great time in a company of each other but also got to know much new about the beautiful and never before visited places of Lithuania.
On the 27th of April 2010 the Erasmus IP team went onto a trip to the historical Grūtas Park, a sculpture garden of Soviet-era statues and an exposition of other Soviet ideological relics from the times of the Lithuanian SSR.
Next stop after the striking Grūtas park was the beautiful town of Druskininkai. The students along with the rest of the group not only have tried the precious mineral water of the biggest Lithuanian resort but also had enjoyed a memorable dinner altogether.
