A Weekend in Karelia

There was a lovely weather during the weekend in Karelia.
The foreign students went on the excursion to Ruskeala. The Marble Quarry of “Ruskeala” is the oldest open mining quarry, filled with natural water so clean, you can see 20 m deep. It is one of the most popular places in Karelia during summer time. The long trip to Ruskeala (5 hours) was worth it. The students rented boats and went to the quarry where they spent a couple of hours relaxing and admiring the landscape.
The next day the Directorate for international cooperation invited the foreign students to a picnic near the river in the town. The students got the chance to swim in the river, play football, communicate with the locals and just enjoy the wonderful weather.
