I think each visit in Kosice is even better that the previous one. Looking forward to the next visit (PM).

Very good conference, wonderful places and meals and drinks, the great conference party and everything were splendid. Thank you very much for such a wonderful and the unforgettable time. I will always remember those happy moments. I am very happy that the conference went very well. I think everybody was very pleased (HU).
Once again, thank you very much for your hospitality and all the rest (BT).
Thank you so much for making our visit to Kosice happen! It was a great honour and a truly amazing, wonderful, unforgettable experience! I was enjoying every moment of our stay in the beautiful friendly Kosice and the lovely hospitable Slovakia. Thank you so much for taking care of us, of our every need, for pampering us. Everything was so thoughtful and warm. The conference was such an inspiration for research, exploration and sharing ideas. It was so perfectly organised it is hard to imagine how much work had been done behind the scenes for everything to be so magnificent. Hats off to everyone in the team (if I may say so) and my warm regards! Thank you for your kindness, warmth, support and care (NA).
I loved sharing these wonderful days with you in Kosice. Thank you for making it happen (MC).
Thank you once again for organizing such a fantastic conference: I heard lots of interesting talks, met great colleagues and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere you created. Congratulations! (MP)
Please allow me to congratulate you both on the clockwork efficiency and warm hospitality with which you made the conference an unforgettable experience. The high scholarly standard of the contributions in itself would have been less than enough to make the event Postmillennial Sensibility 2 such a resounding success as it was without the tireless work, unflagging attention and friendly attitude with which you and your excellent helpers created an atmosphere conducive to efficient work and relaxing conviviality. Thank you for your dedication to a cause worthy of our best joint efforts (AF).
Thank you very much for everything you've done to make our visit to Kosice fantastic and unforgettable. It was great to meet so many nice people, make new relations and share ideas. The atmosphere at the conference was very warm and stimulating. (TP)
I am happy to be a frequent visitor to UPJS & Kosice. I think the events guarantee good academic standards and splendid atmosphere. One must add the nice people, the beauty of places and the total effect is just fantastic. (PM)
