In Dracula castle
Visiting Dracula's castle is an adventure that is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who dares to venture inside. And when a group of friends, children, and teachers from Romania and different countries come together to explore the legendary castle, the experience becomes more memorable.
The group arrived at the castle on a sunny and cold day in late winter, eager to explore the dark, mysterious corridors and rooms that have fascinated people for centuries.
Organizing and holding different activities for young people
Organizing team building for volunteers, working with different groups of teenagers, a is a little bit challenging. In this blog, I'll share my experience of working for two months, organizing team building for volunteers, working with different groups of teenagers, holding energizers and games for them.

A weekend in Brasov/Brassó
Since we are in Romania it was the first time that we had a trip just with ESC volunteers: Alik Mazmanyan from Armenia, Gülcan Babir from Türkiye, Soso Tkhlashidze from Georgia, and me Mariam Evanesyan from Armenia.
Two months in Romania
Starting a new chapter in life can be both exciting and terrifying. Moving to a foreign country alone in your early twenties is no exception. However, taking the leap to experience a new culture and start a new life is a decision that can lead to some of the most memorable experiences of your life.
For me, the decision to move to a new country came with a range of emotions. I was excited to explore new places and meet new people, but also nervous about being alone and far away from my family and friends. However, I quickly learned that stepping out of my comfort zone was the best decision I could have made.
The Armenian community of Gyergyószentmiklós
There are about 400 hundred years the Armenian community exists in Transylvania.
They speak Hungarian, write in Hungarian, and pray in Armenian.
They lived in Transylvania for 400 hundred years being cut off from Armenia and the Armenian church, but they could keep their traditions and identity.
The community is so unique, their names are Hungarian, their cuisine is a mixture of Hungarian and Armenian dishes, and the church service is both in the Hungarian and the Armenian languages.
We had a two-day trip to Gyergyószentmiklós. They welcomed us with great hospitality, we had national dishes in a warm atmosphere.
