Ain’t no party like a FER party

There is no student in Zagreb who hasn’t heard of the FER’s brucošijada. It is, in fact, the biggest event of this type and is specific because the students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing both visit and organize the event.  About 200 volunteers of the unprofitable student association, the organization of FER students and the KSET Club are responsible for making this annual freshman party happen every November. To thank the volunteers for their selfless help, Darjan Fioli?, Sandra Grego, Nika Pregelj, Marjolein Moes, Myroslava Mialova decided to present some of the heroes who keep this festival alive. Anamarija, for instance, is already a veteran in here, since this…

Erasmus Christmas

Most citizens of Croatia, Ukraine, Poland and Germany celebrate Christmas. Although at first it seems that all we celebrate Christmas in a similar way, our Erasmus students are here to reassure us. Anita Fudalej, Maksym Sytnikov, Tena Šar?evi?, Anna Will and Sarah Krka collected some interesting facts about celebrating Christmas in their countries and compared Advent in Croatia, i.e. Zagreb, with their homeland advent. “It is not like this in Germany. We don’t like to light everything up so much”, Anna says. Students also shared with us what they like about celebrating Christmas in Croatia. Anita noticed another feature of Croatian advent; “I’m not sure why I like Christmas in…

Martićeva Street Guide

Our Erasmus girls Giulia, Elizabeth and Maria explored Marti?eva street, also known as the Design district in Zagreb. Marti?eva used to be a quiet place that never stood out, except by the fact that it was in the centre of the city. However, for the last couple of years this neighbourhood blossomed into the city’s creative zone, known for its local design stores, architecture, art and bars & restaurants. Originally famous for many car-related shops, Marti?eva transformed into creative community that we see nowadays. Elizabeth talked to Jelena Slavujevi?, Croatian Design Superstone communications manager, the biggest design concept store in Croatia. For more information about Design District, visit the site below…

Zagreb Film Festival

Zagreb Film Festival this year for the first time, instead of traditional October, takes place in November on the usual city locations. Erasmus students visited some of them and talked to directors who participated in this year’s edition. Since the very beginning, Zagreb Film Festival has been programmatically focused on the presentation and promotion of debut films and new filmmakers. For those who didn’t know, Zagreb Film Festival is held since 2003 and it regularly features several international competition programs – feature films, short films and documentary films, with one short film competition program for Croatian filmmakers. It often hosts non-competitive screenings, like debut works made by established film directors or selections…

Political Campaigns in Croatia

With great power comes great responsibility, as Ben Parker used to say. In the case of Croatian parliamentary elections (or any elections around the world, really), with great power comes a lot of benefits and plenty of new ways to trick people into giving you their vote. Erasmus students experienced their first parliamentary elections in Croatia and of course, political campaigns, promising and realistic as always. They went to the main square, and tried to approach some politicians or their supporters in hopes of gathering some information related to their political programmes. It was also an opportunity for Erasmus students to test their English-speaking skills. Watch the video and see if they managed…

Erasmus on Christmas

Christmas or as some may refer to it, the most wonderful time of the year, is usually time to go back home and celebrate the holidays with family and friends. But not for Erasmus students here in Zagreb who simply can’t go back home. This is the story about five Erasmus students from Brazil and Kazakhstan who met here in Zagreb, became friends and now share their first Christmas experience abroad.

…on Erasmus by Michal

Djevojke u ljetnim haljinama … on Erasmus. Erasmus is one and only in its kind experience. From the very begging of my studies, I knew that I want to go somewhere abroad to study, meet people and new culture. After many hours of thinking I decided that going to ‘Western” countries is going to be pointless. These countries are really well known and besides that my financial status would not let me to take everything from this time, what would like to experience. Suddenly somewhere in December our local Erasmus coordinator announced that there is one more destination to choose – Zagreb. Without unnecessary dilemmas I have chosen Zagreb. What was coming…
