December 17th 2019 was the day we, the students of classes 2 AT and 2 GT, visited the capital of Slovenia.
The trip started at 8 am when we headed to Ljubljana by bus. Sleepy but excited we started our journey listening to music that was coming from the back seats. We arrived in the center of Ljubljana at half past ten and began our sightseeing tour. The tour gave us a glance into the city’s rich history and the effect it had on its later development. Among other interesting facts we learned that it was Jože Plečnik, a famous Slovenian architect, who designed significant part of Ljubljana. Having finished the tour our teachers gave us some free time which we spent in different ways; some students decided to take a walk through the town while the others rushed off to the nearest restaurants and coffee bars.
At 1.15 pm our lectures and a workshop at Hiža eksperimentov started. We took part in numerous experiments in physics and found out how they worked. We especially liked the workshop in which we made a small rocket and learned about the features of liquid nitrogen.
When the program in Hiža eksperimentov finished we had some free time again. It was getting dark so the lights went on creating holiday spirit and Christmas magic. There was a big Christmas tree at the Prešern square decorated with countless lights under which we took a lot of photos.
Unfortunately, it was time to go home. On the bus again we were listening to music and exchanging our impressions of the excursion. We returned to Rijeka late in the evening tired but happy with our field trip.
