Two guests from the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria payed a short visit to Dunaújváros during this week. One of them, Ana Jorge is a librarian, she had a useful meeting with the Chief Librarian of our university, Erzsébet Nyitrai, while the other colleague, Ana Silva is the responsible coordinator of the 15 Portuguese Erasmus students who are currently studying at our university. Of course it is not the first time that we receive exchange students from Portugal, in fact the main reason for the colleagues to come here was to check out, what makes our city and our institution so popular among their students.



One thing we learnt that nice desserts could be one true reason behind it, as according to the two Anas although the Hungarian cuisine is delicious, the best moment of their stay was when they tried out our “kürtőskalács” (chimney cake). Of course their country has their illustrious gastronomical traditions too. It was actually a coincidence that the Portuguese cultural event at our university took place on the same week, when the two colleagues had their staff mobility visit. At the event we were also able to taste different kind of delicious sweets prepared by their Erasmus students.

Beside the cultural events held during the week the visitors had the opportunity to get familiar with the campus and the city too. Some fruitful meetings with colleagues of our University were also part of the program. Fortunately everything went well, and we received mostly positive feedback from our kind partners, so it is our sincere hope that we can send and welcome students and guests from Leiria in the future as well.
