On 8th of November, the City Hall of Banska Bystrica was filled by many visitors eager to learn about other cultures and to try taste the traditional foods that were prepared by international students, studying at UMB.

International Village is an annual event prepared by the ESN group with the objective to bring people all around the world together in the city hall to teach each other about their countries. On this occassion around 100 guests and presenters gathered, resulting in great atmosphere and a night to remember. The program ranged from presentations to traditional dances and even singing that everyone enjoyed. During breaks everyone had the opportunity to eat and hopefully nobody left hungry.

To conclude, we can safely say that the turnover of people at the event pleasantly surprised everyone and exceeded the past events. With 14 countries present, everyone had a great time and made many new friends. Last but not least, the afterparty was a success and served as a great opportunity for these new friendships to improve and bond.
