Students will live in comfortable, but modest, apartments in the town of Niksic. The site of Vrbicka Cave is located 10 miles from Niksic at 950 meters above sea level (ca. 3,100 feet). Apartments will have all basic necessary amenities, including hot showers and a washing machine. Students will sleep on beds, couches or on inflatable mattresses on the floor and will share bathrooms with other students in the same apartment. There will be up to 5 students per apartment. Students will need to bring their own sleeping bag and towels.
All meals will be communal events and will provide plenty of nutritious but basic food in the tradition of local cousin. Dinner will be served at a local restaurant where a choice of grilled meat, fish or salads will be provided. Some specialized diets may be arranged (vegan, kosher, etc.) but students must consult with project directors and no guarantees will be made. Vegetarian options will be much easier to accommodate although you should be aware that Balkan cuisine is very much based on meat, especially grilled meat.
