Three weeks in Europe is an unforgettable close encounter with culture and history of the countries the students visit, which earns them a grade 11/12 History/Music credit.

Each trip starts with Poland, their teacher home country. In 2014 the 30 students visited Poland, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, and Luxemburg. In 2015 – Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Spain, Andorra, France, and Monaco.

Museums, galleries, concerts, meeting musicians, the program is about LIVING HISTORY.
