My Erasmus Experience in La Rochelle Business School
Where is it? La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime, Poitou-Charente, France
La Rochelle is a small city (around 75,000 citizens) in Charente-Maritime region right near the Atlantic Ocean. It is located quiet far from Paris (500 km), but near Bordeaux (around 80-100 km). La Rochelle is famous for two things. First, in XVI-XVII century it was a centre of the protestant movement, and this historical moment is described in the famous novel “The Three Musketeers” by Alexander Dumas. And the second thing is Fort Boyard – the castle in the middle of the ocean where “The Fort Boyard” TV-show takes place.
