LMU stands for the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität. Their website says it is “the university in the heart of Munich. LMU Munich is one of the leading research universities in Europe, with a more than 500-year-long tradition.”

Which is so true – you can feel the academic spirit there (something I didn’t get in Ukraine). In fact on Sundays there may be occasional rehearsals of the choir and the orchestra. If you’re lucky to be there at that time – sneak in! You’ll feel yourself in a Harry Potter movie because of the spirit + the music + the hall where the rehearsal takes place = totally the right atmosphere.

What I fancy most about LMU is the neighbourhood – it’s very inspiring, has lot’s of bars and shops. The famous English garden is just a couple of blocks away from the subway station. You can easily end up having an enjoyable evening even if it started with “well, I don’t know, let’s just get to the University (the train station) and see what we can do” – oh, there’s so much to do!

But what I don’t like is the bicycles. It seems like everyone rides a bike and they are doing it very fast and quiet. I wonder if it’s an evil conspiracy, because if it is – they won – I turned bike-a-phobiac in this town…

But what I wanted to show here is the mood of an evening by the LMU.

Which gives you an idea of how wonderful life can feel if you are in the right place at a right time )
