Krzysztof calling Wroclaw

Once upon a time there was an AIESECer called Krzysiek who set out to the small city of Nis as his LC Wroclaw banished him to Serbia….

And guess what, something went wrong with the “punishment”…… :)

So, let me start from the very beginning: People choose USA, India or some other huge country to go to their internship, but trust me, that here, in Serbia, everything is possible!!!!!

I will start with the first chapter of my life that brought me here- WORK: Let me tell you that Serbian people like to participate in many projects and learn about all sorts of different stuff, so being here was definitely the greatest opportunity to find out about plenty of things beside doing my regular job that I came here for.

Participation in the project “Tolerance Wake Up” brought me to work with the high-school students that were really interested in the topic and the AIESEC organization as a whole.


Moreover, I had experience working as a faci on their “Enterpreneurship” project and I attended many conferences and seminars here, like “Finance Education Seminar” (for this project I was also working on the preparation of the workshops.)

All these activities enabled me to get the experience that will come very handy in my future professional life.

Daily life and meeting everyday with people from other countries and the cooperation with all of them improved my English very much.

The second chapter of the book called PEOPLE: Before I came here I talked to a few persons that were in Serbia and they told me that Serbian people were open and friendly, which was the one of the main reasons I wanted to get here in the first place.. Just in order to check if they were telling the truth…:) And after two months spent in detailed analysis I came to the conclusion that it was all true!!!!! For example, in the evening you can go to a café alone and when you will be leaving the place you will have at least 5 new friends….

The third and the most attractive one-FUN: “HLADOVINA BRATE” what means exactly: just relax and have all the fun you can get… Serbian people like to get out a lot and it is always fun when you are with them… Moreover, there are many sights to see and numerous cultural monuments to visit here, in Nis and the nearby areas…..I witnessed that Serbia has beautiful natural landscapes and, believe me, the Serbs like to spend their sunny days hitch-hiking, organizing many picnics, and barbeques….

So, you won’t find here huge supermarkets and great shopping malls, but what you WILL have:

1. The great opportunities to work and have new experiences

2. Many friends and new acquaintances

3. Really, but really great FUN
