The shortest month in the year gives us the opportunity to accomplish the long-planned projects and resolutions that we set at the beginning of the year. This February definitely impresses with its wide selection of discussions, workshops, and lectures on craft, study or movement topics. Learn something new. Something you haven’t tried before. Check out this monthly guide for acquiring new skills in 2019 only in Košice:
