The Summer University of the NEOU PetrSU continues to work and this week various historical and natural sights of Karelia have been demonstrated to the group of students from Switzerland, France, Holland, Italy and Spain. Foreign students visited the Kizhi Island, Valaam, and the famous Kivatch waterfall.
Our guests from Europe were greatly amazed by transparent air, high blue sky, bright but cold northern sun, and Karelian forest fragrance. Spanish student Silvia Villanueva’s question: “And can we just walk around here?”- demonstrated the common mood of the group. Acquaintance with the northern nature was proceeded in the local museum and arboretum where finally the guests saw “alive” Karelian birch. They have already seen a plenty of souvenirs from this tree.
