Year 8 German Trip to Bratislava Old Town

26 October 2017

On a perfect late autumn sunny Friday the 13th of October, Year 8 German students rounded off their topic ‘Orientation in the town” by doing a tour through the historical streets of Bratislava city center.

Students came to the trip well prepared with a basic knowledge about Bratislava which they had learned in lessons prior to the trip.

We started our day by using the tram to get to the town. Once there we had a professional guided tour in German wherein we learnt why St. Martin’s cathedral is so important, why there are small golden coins in the pathways of the old town and what composers used to live and work in the town.

Students loved their visit to St. Martin’s cathedral, the formal coronation church of the Hungarian kings and queens. Another impressive interior which we visited was the Primate’s Palace. The former winter residence of the archbishop, which today is the seat of the mayor of the town. We also visited the representative rooms of the palace where the treaty of Pressburg was signed after the battle between three Emperors in 1805.

We concluded the tour with a brief stop in an ‘Eissalon’ where everybody enjoyed the best ice cream in town!

The information that the students gleaned from the trip was used by the students to prepare for their speaking assessment about the topic ‘Orientation in the town’.
