So, they decided to stay in Koper and drive to Portorož for lectures. Their music choice was a song titled Ściernisco, by a polish band Golec uOrkiestra, which they say is again starting to get popular in Poland, despite the fact the song was released in 2000. http://videoweb.rtvslo.si/podcast/ava_archive05/2018/12/14/STUDYABROADKubaFilip1632573.mp3 RSI 437 clean Our newest episode of Study Abroad features not one but two guests from Poland.

Apart from studying, the Turkish student also made several friends during his stay in Slovenia.
