Lviv is beautiful!

In May, the students of IB1 had an opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Lviv for four days. After a long journey, they still decided to start their sightseeing with a long walk through Rynok Square and taste a few of Ukrainian traditional dishes. The students did not only enjoy the green scenery and beautiful architecture from the outside; for the next few days, with the class tutor as a guide, the group visited places such as Lviv National Academic Opera, Lychakiv Cemetery and Museum-Arsenal. They also had a chance to see the extraordinary exhibitions in Pototski Palace and Lviv National Art Gallery, where the group could enjoy for example contemporary art by young artists from all around the world. Although the trip back to Wrocław took a long time, the students did not - even for a moment - regret going to Lviv.

Talks, autographs, taking pictures, all belonged to the less official part of the meeting with Lauren Groff, which for many EKOLA students was the first direct and unquestionably important encounter with an author whose works can be found on bookshop shelves with quality literature.
