Our Canadian student Matthew Vasilev celebrated the last day of his studies in an unusual manner. Together with his teacher Marina Khazova he visited the exhibition “The Solovki. Calvary and Resurrection” which was brought to Petrozavodsk by the Solovki State Museum-Reserve. The history of the monastery on the Solovki Islands comprises 500 years. Its chapters are at times dramatic and even tragic. The plentifulness of illustrative information, from reproductions of ancient maps to modern photographs and videos, helped the visitors to plunge into history. Matthew is sure that one day he will definitely come back to Russia to visit this amazing place.
