Autumn is the right time for new Russian experience

Autumn is a good time for travelling, making new friends, learning Russian and other foreign languages.

Autumn is a time of berries and mushrooms. Ask your Russian homestay family to cook a delicious mushroom soup, tasteful popatoes with mushrooms and meat, healthy cranberry kisel’ and Russian pies with lingonberry.  In autumn we cook fish a lot – sudak, whitefish, salmon and pike. You will definitely enjoy it.

Where to go and what to do in Petrozavodsk?

Our students say that Petrozavodsk has the right size. That is not as big as St.Peterburg and Moscow and not as small to get bored. There are a lot of things to do here.

  • You may enjoy listening to music in Philarmonia and Conservatory, or watching ballet in Music theater or performances in Drama theater.  I recommend a new performance “Nastasya Philipovna” based on the novel “Idiot” by Dostoevskiy.
  • You may do a lot of sport in Petrozavodsk – biking, running, swimming, playing football, skating, joga and others.
  • You may take part in various workshops, lectures, exhibitions etc. I recommend a cooking master-class and learn to cook “kalitki” – Karelian pies with potatoes, carrots and millet.
