Newsletter Team Talk
For the first time the whole Newsletter Team got together on the 25th EESTEC
Congress in Craiova. Since some of us hadn't met each other in person, only
through tons of emails, it was really great to gather everyone in one place.
In addition to having fun together, the team also managed to have
discussions about the improvement and development of the Newsletter, which
you will get to see in the following months.
For now, the EESTEC Newsletter Team wishes you a sunny and shiny spring and
since the exams are also coming up, good luck!
Welcome to our new representative, Observer St. Petersburg.
Congratulations and best of luck for the new board of LC Eskisehir.

Interesting Facts About Brest
Brest, formerly also Brest-on-the-Bug and Brest-Litovsk, is a city
Being situated on the main railway line connecting Berlin and Moscow, and an
intercontinental highway, Brest became a principal border crossing since
World War II in Soviet times. Some of the land in the Brest rail yards
remains contaminated as a result of the transshipment of radioactive
materials here since Soviet days although cleanup operations have been
taking place. A majestic Soviet-era war memorial was constructed on the site
of the 1941 battle, to commemorate the known and unknown defenders of the
Hero-Fortress. This war memorial is the largest tourist attraction of the
city. An archaeological museum of the old city Berestye is located on the
southern island of the Hero-Fortress. Brest also has the first Belarusian
outdoor railway museum where are collected unique exhibits of locomotives
and other railway units of release of the beginning and the middle of the
last century. The administration of the city is located on the main square
of city named Lenin’s square. In Brest it is possible to see also sports
constructions of world level – the rowing channel, the ice palace, arena for
athletics, sports palace Victoria and others . Even though it’s a 300.000
people city and 1000 years old, the city lives and develops every day!
