Foreigners in Ventspils


On Monday, February 22, 2016 our own international students organized an event “Foreigners in Ventspils” in Ventspils Main Library. The ones who stood behind this wonderful event were students from Uzbekistan, Morocco, Nigeria, India, and Tajikistan. These students expressed their opinions on how it’s like to be a foreigner in Latvia, gave the audience a little insight into their day-to-day life in Ventspils and they also had prepared presentations on the countries they come from.

Overall impressions:


The international students expressed their satisfaction with life in Ventspils, they all enjoy this town’s calmness and beautiful nature. Though the calmness and the small number of inhabitants in Ventspils, and in Latvia in general, came to a few of them as a culture shock at first, because they come from cities of multi-million populations. But they admit that they like that the town being smaller in size is therefore cleaner and the air is better. Lasīt vairāk
