Final comments
Erasmus is an experience of a life time. Take advantage of every moment, every little chance you get to do things and learn from life. The knowledge and experience i got cannot be obtained in any university or formal education institute. It's a way for young people to discover themselves, get in contact with different people, cultures and ways of thinking, sense the freedom but also their responsibilities towards themselves and the rest of the people.

Personal comments
I spent one month in the university's residence and it was a nightmare. It's one hour far from the university and the city center, it had a lot of restrictions (nobody allowed to enter our room,we had to ask permission for parties, return before 1p.m. otherwise the door was locked), very little facilities, rude guards and wires all around in order us not to escape!!!!
