On sunny Saturday, October 4th, PetrSU foreign students and the teacher from Poland who teach Polish at PetrSU attended the free excursion organized by the National Library of Karelia “Read Streets like Books”.
That day the guide focused on the history of Sobornaya square (Kirov square nowadays) and it was very interesting to learn historical and archive facts about the old buildings that surrounded the square from the 18-19 centuries.
Excursions around the town help the students to get acquainted with the towny people, to learn about the place they are temporarily living at and to practise their Russian language skills. During and after the excursion the visitors could ask questions on the history of Petrozavodsk and the way people lived here previously. Besides, everyone can still enjoy the sunny autumn days outdoors in Karelia.
Such excursions that acquaint with the history of the streets and the places of Petrozavodsk are held regularly for free on Saturdays. The schedule is available in the official group in vkontakte: vk.com/history_petrozavodsk. The next excursion is planned on October 11. If you are interested, then join us and come to the National Library, Pushkinskaya str. 5 at 15:00.
