Our town Humenné and our school

Humenné is a town in the Prešov Region in eastern Slovakia and the second largest town of the historic Zemplín region. It lies at the volcanic Vihorlat mountains and at the confluence of the Laborec and Cirocha Rivers. Its life is rich in cultural and sports events. The town is a starting point for tourism, because there are numerous opportunities in the picturesque countryside of the East Carpathians.

The most attractive places are the Vihorlat Mountains boasting of their Morské oko lake, and the Poloniny at the border of Slovakia, Poland, and Ukraine. The surroundings of Humenné, with their romantic ruins of medieval castles and an open-air museum of architecture situated in the town park, are a source of knowledge and relaxation.

It was built after 1922 by Greek refugees from Anatolia, who wanted to give the settlement the name of their hometown (Mudanya, Turkey), hence the addition of the word nea , which means new in Greek. The town has an intense tourist and financial activity. The visitor of Nea Moudania can admire the magnificent sea. The depth of the waters is ideal for the young visitors, as well as for those who are not very good swimmers.

Our town Kelme. Kelmė land is a small area in the western part of Lithuania, in the middle of Samogitia. The great road goes from St. Petersburg–Tallinn–Riga–Šiauliai–Kelmė–Tauragė–Tilžė–Karaliaučius (Kaliningradas) to Poland and Germany. The town was founded on the left bank of the Kražantė River. About 9000 people live here at the moment. Local dwellers relate the Kelmė name to “Kelmynės” (the stubby place), because in the old days impenetrable forests murmured here. Later on, these forests were cut down by Samogitians, who settled down in the shelter of picturesque rivulets. In written historical documents, Kelmė was mentioned in 1416 for the first time.
