Comenius Bremen
Slovenian Team in Bremen: Vesna, Manca and Barbara.

On the first day we were warmly welcomed by Mr Dönsch, the headmaster and together we visited the Town Hall of Bremen. The reception at Town Hall was followed by a sightseeing tour of the city. Our guides were the kind students of ÖG who told us a lot of interesting things about the city’s history and showed us around the old part of Bremen. We were most impressed by the magnificent Cathedral of St Peter and the statue of Roland, the city’s patron. We also took a ride on the historic tram.
