Final comments
It's very nice place to travel to summertime. Nightlife is quite much boring when compared to Italy. Instruction system is good even if can be much more improved. There should be some more interaction between foreign students and local industry.

Never tried the TKY housing system, I always used HOAS. I am quite much satisfied with it even if the rent is a bit high.
