Bistrik 7, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
With the beginning of the school year, the first generation of the Gymnasium SSST took a high school graduate trip to beautiful Italy. On this week long trip the students were accompanies by their form tutor Vildana Ćelović, physical education professor Nerim Herenda and pedagogist Enisa Ćehajić.
The first stop was Venice where our students visited St Mark’s Square, La Pieta Church, the Old Prisons, Doge’s Palace and the Rialto Bridge, one of the four oldest and most famous bridges in Venice. Despite the overcast and grey weather, our students were quite impressed by the city on water.
They arrived in Rimini the same evening, staying there for the next three days, and visiting San Marino, Ravenna, Verona and Gardland. They made a tour of Piazza della Liberta, Garibaldi’s monument, San Francesco Church and Tore Cesta in San Marino and in Ravenna they had an opportunity to visit the tomb of Dane Alighieri, St. Apolinare in Classe Cathedral and the Basilica of St. Vitale. They were just as impressed with Verona, particularly Juliet’s House, and Bra Square, Arena, Piazza Erba, and the tombstones of the Scala family.
They spent the last day of the trip in one of the largest amusement parks in Europe – Garland, situated near Lake Garda. The all-day stay in the amusement park was an excellent ending to our students’ week-long adventure.
We wish for this trip to become deeply embedded in our students’ memory, as a reminder of one of the most beautiful periods in their lives.
