Sunday, January 22nd > 2nd Teenage treasure hunt
> Invitation for the 2nd teenage treasure hunt THE DILEMMA 22 January
In our city for 28 years every year something unique happens. One day of the year, children and adults run the streets looking for the "hidden treasure". This is none other than the knowledge of our own city.
This year ANICHNEFTES alongside the 28th Treasure Hunt will organize the 2nd teen hunt in which students of three grades of high school can take part, and which will be held on January 22, 2017.
In the hope that "if you know something better, you love it more," we invite you to "play" with us on a hunt with time and history in the old town, so that the new generation of hunters will be ready to take the over from the past and continue this beautiful institution.
