Visiting the Kizhi Island and Rubcheila village

Summer in Petrozavodsk and Karelia is a best time for visiting its famous places of interest. The International students who study Russian language at the Summer University of the Linguistic Centre of PetrSU had a unique chance to visit some of them.
First they visited the Kizhi Island, an open air museum of wooden architecture, famous for its Churches - Russian wooden architecture jewel, which are under the auspices of UNESCO. They really enjoyed being here, loved the architecture of the Kizhi churches and the magnetic spirit of the island.
Last weekend some of them also went to the historical Karelian village Rubcheila. The village is a significant site of the folk architecture of Karelia of the XIX century. The students had a chance to get acquainted with the folk tradition of Syamozerje. They watched the performance of Rubcheila folk music group and tried national Karelian dishes, which they found very tasty. The students told that the most exciting was the story they learned about the history of the region, how people settled and lived in Rubcheila for many years. Also they really enjoyed singing old Karelian songs and dancing national dances.
