On Wednesday, 20 December 2023, the community of the College of Europe in Natolin celebrated - as is tradition - the conclusion of the Winter exam session and the end of the first semester of the academic year 2023-2024.
The Natolin students and staff alike participated in a Polish Traditional Christmas Dinner (referred to as a Wigilia) offered by the Vice-Rector of the College of Europe, Mrs Ewa OŚNIECKA-TAMECKA. We also had the pleasure of welcoming the Rector of the College of Europe, Ms Federica MOGHERINI, to Natolin for the dinner.
The Wigilia is a unique opportunity to gather and celebrate Christmas and the festive period. In line with Polish tradition, the Natolin Restaurant served typical dishes for the Wigilia, while the Natolin Choir shall entertained the students with the singing of several Christmas carols in different languages.
