Vilnius is not the most beautiful city in Europe and it doesn’t have the warmest people at first sight. I have to say that when the plane landed and I got a lift to where I was to live in the following months I wasn’t very sure to have chosen the right place. Nevertheless, as it is the case with a lot of first impressions, I was wrong.
The first time I saw the building where I was going to study I was shocked. I find really interesting that in the same school there are so many Arts. There aren’t as many lessons as in Spain, and it takes time to get used to the new school, and ,of course, to such a different language.
I am really thankful that I can make all my presentations in English, since Lithuanian is really complicated.
But Vilnius… it isn’t just its buildings or its contrast between the old town and the old soviet neighborhoods, it is also its people when they open to
you and ,of course ,all the experiences that you live that make you feel so good. Lithuanians are deeply involved with the Arts and culture and they have good relationships with the Baltic and Nordic countries.
About the Erasmus, I’d like to say that it isn’t like many people think. You have to work, you have to attend your lessons, and you have to wake up early (if you have the misfortune of having class at 9). But I think it’s the most beautiful experience I’ve ever had, meeting
so many people from different countries, and realizing that you have life- lasting friendships, and that country or religion don´t really matter because we can really understand each other.
So I can say really loudly: Aš Myliu Vilnių (I love Vilnius)
