Over a month period, students from Poland had a chance to work as part of a team on tourism projects.
During the Erasmus+ practice, students go on a chronological task to cover different aspects of tourism.
During the project, the Polish students took a guided tour, to learn about local history.
The students were happy because "We got to cooperate with the municipality of Rethymno, Department of Tourism. It was a great experience that will definitely have an impact on our future. We had the opportunity to get to know the culture and history of the town. Thanks to our cooperation we visited places that we probably wouldn't, because we didn't know about most of them, for example, the lyra and baklava workshops or the museum of contemporary art. Thanks to this practice we learned a lot of important skills that will be useful in our futures. We got an opportunity to bond with local people and see how they live, but also with tourists since we're part of the tourism industry. We got to try local food and have a taste of Greek life, which is different than our lives in Poland. This month gave us a lot of changes in a lot of aspects of everyday life for example climate and the weather, different language, and currency, and even simple conversations were unusual for us because people here are much more outgoing and extroverted. We had a very good time here and we don't want to leave the city because Rethymno feels like our second home. We're really thankful for this whole month of working together with the Municipality of Rethymno, and the Department of Tourism, it was an unforgettable and marvelous adventure. We hope to see you once again".
