I’m afraid to travel to Russia for the first time. What should I know?

First of all, breathe in and stop worrying. Coordinators of Enjoy Russian School will follow you with each step to arrive to Petrozavodsk and enjoy your time in Russia! Before your trip you will receive an information package with all detailed instructions, useful links, contacts and advice. If you have any questions regarding your trip, we answer e-mails very quickly and we are on the phone for any emergency call!

When in Russia. We can book an individual transfer for you.

The driver will meet you at the airport and get you directly to your host family. Your host family will show you the nearest bus stops, explain all necessary details and accompany you to the School on the first study day where you’ll meet the School coordinators and get a welcome package (maps, sim-cards, timetable).

After your lessons you’ll meet volunteers of Enjoy Russian School

… who’ll show you around, have lunch with you, accompany to the bank and to the bus stop to get home. From now on you will have everything necessary to walk in the town by yourself, to choose where to spend your free time and all the necessary contacts to ask for help if you need.

You won’t get bored in Russia

During the week you will participate in different cultural activities and meetings with locals arranged by the School, and of course, you’re always free to spend your leisure time on your own – study at home or a café, go to the museum or the theatre or enjoy beautiful Karelian nature walking in the numerous parks. When your course is over, you can travel home by yourself (we’ll help you to book the train or bus) or by individual transfer to the airport.


As you can see, you will always have the support of EnjoyRussian School coordinators, volunteers and host family. Keep calm, CHOOSE A COURSE and come to Petrozavodsk!
