On February 6th we were invited to traditional Turkish breakfast, hosted by Balturka Culture Academy. Event was for Turkish students, who are now studying in Vilnius and for their mentors. The event started at 11h, when we were warmly greeted by organizers and volunteers. Then participants listened to presentations about Balturka Culture Academy, which is actually very active. Balturka Culture Academy organizes various events, such as cultural days, concerts, and poetry days. It promotes not only Turkish culture, but also encourages young people to participate in social projects.  This time we had an opportunity to taste traditional Turkish food, which was really delicious and also expand our knowledge about Turkish culture and people. The event was great, students exchanged their opinion about Vilnius, mentors got a chance to take a look to different organization’s activities :)
