“I am so glad that Serbia is the country I have come to! I love the warmness and openness of the people, the customs and traditions, the food, the Serbian lifestyle, the social life, nature, and all the old buildings. I love how passionate people of Serbia seem to be about their country and traditions. The people here are brilliant.”  Lauren from New Zealand

“My year in Serbia is the best year in my life. The first orientation, first day at school, first sports practice, so many emotions in one week only. I don’t know why I chose Serbia, but I know for sure that I couldn’t have made a better choice. This year I met so many wonderful people, attended one of the best and oldest high schools in the country, met the coach of the national handball team, travelled and celebrated two Christmases… What more could you want for?” Julia from Italy
