New beginnings: What about the new volunteers?

A few new volunteers are now working in Balkan Hotspot. We would like to present them and tell you a short story about the first impressions of working here, living in a new place with previously unknown people and the city. Enjoy it!

Allora, prossima fermata: Firenze!

As a major crossroad between Bologna and Rome, Florence shines out as a conspicuous spot for Italy addicts. At the end of the medieval period, the city succeeded in several fields such as finance, commerce and arts. Considering that it is still one of the most touristic places, due especially to the fine art environment, it definitely deserves to be considered as the birthplace of the Renaissance. To be there and see all those unique masterpieces of the medieval ages was the determinant reason for me to spend three days in that ravishing city.
