Oh boy, oh girl it just keeps going! After the memorable Berlin weekend trip-madness we are actually raising the bar even further.
Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this one because to use a totally worn out cliché pop culture reference, it’s going to be LEGEN - okay this How I met your Mother quote has been used to death, I’m so sorry for this – DARY!!!
Watch out here comes the weekend trip to end all weekend trips! The holy grail of weekend trips! The weekend where you finally go cliff diving in Croatia like that crazy guy on YouTube that you secretly admire. The weekend where you get to sit on the picturesque promenade of Pula drinking a glass of wine and making friends for life. The weekend where you’re flipping a steak on a BBQ while watching the sun set over the magnificent coastline…
Can you already feel this becoming some of the best memories of your exchange year? Can you feel it Mr. Krabs? If that’s the case then say yes to an amazing weekend in Pula. Say yes to life! Drop whatever you’re doing unless it’s like, really important and sign up at the link below. Spots are very limited so be fast!
To continue with the generic pop culture references:
We are gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse! All of this you get for just 115 € if you own an ESN card or 125€ if you don’t have it.
That includes everything: Transportation, accommodation for 3 nights, club entries! Don’t even ask what we had to the get this price down so low! Okay actually we had to file for bankruptcy. It’s horrible. Some of us lost their home because of this. We are trying to just keep on going and see the silver lining. Please make this count at least.

Franz Schreker was considered one of the most important opera composers of his time - he was even referred to as the only legitimate successor to Richard Wagner. Therefore, MESA cordially invites you to join us for the opera at the National Theatre to see „The Stigmatized“. The opera will be in German with German and English surtitles. The play lasts 3 ½ hours, there is a break of 30 minutes.
„The Stigmatized“ is about the physically disfigured Alviano Salvago who appears condemned to a life without love and erotic fulfillment. He devotes all his energy to creating a perfect – if artificial – world, in accordance with his vision – the island of Elysium. Yet, this beautiful utopia has a dark side. Inspired by Alviano's maxim, „Let beauty be the bounty of the strong“, the city of Genua’s male elite regularly abduct young women, take them to the island and rape them. Alviano seeks to bring an end to this and make his creation available to the whole world.
