The Summer University of the NEOU PetrSU is finishing its work. This summer students from Europe, Asia, North America, and Australia devoted their vacations to the learning of Russian language, literature, Karelian and Russian history. Along with the educational activity the study program included visiting of some historical and cultural sights of Karelia and Petrozavodsk. Our guests were amazed by the beauty of Karelian nature and sunny hot days of this summer.
Students are departing from republic with the great impressions. Now the majority of students can tell that Petrozavodsk has become their home town and they are planning to visit it again. A student from Holland Laura Crump writes: “Why Petrozavodsk? This town is situated on the shore of Onego Lake and it has very beautiful places. I like swimming, walking along the embankment with my friends, reading a book or riding a horse near the lake. Also I like Kizhi as it is a splendid island! I like to speak Russian with my teachers and friends especially about love, literature, and Russian soul. I do love my life in Petrozavodsk and sometimes I can feel that I’m originally from Petrozavodsk, not from Holland! So, that’s the main reason why I love Petrozavodsk!”
