A language study trip to Russia will provide an insight into a fascinating world. Magnificent cities and huge expanses of nature are the most valuable treasures held by the world's largest country.
Russia is a vast country with an incredible abundance of land and culture. During your language study trip to Russia, you will come face to face with impressive palaces, elaborately decorated onion domes, colourful churches and golden façades, particularly in Moscow and St. Petersburg. In these bustling cities, century-old attractions are interspersed with McDonalds and Starbucks outlets. Russia is also known for its typical industrial cities with their precast concrete buildings and smoking chimneys. Most of the language schools in Russia are located in the showcase cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg. Even the smallest amount of broken Russian will be warmly received by the locals whose reserve will quickly turn into warm hospitality.
Outside of the cities, Russia is home to huge expanses of often uninhabited land. Russia has the greatest land mass of any country on Earth, encompassing dense forests, the snow-covered Ural Mountains, the icy tundra and the Mongolian steppe. The country's magnificent landscape is characterised by beautiful beaches, Arctic seas, raging rivers and the world's deepest lake, Lake Baikal. Organised treks around Lake Baikal in Siberia, in the Altai Mountains on the border with Mongolia, and on the Kamtschatka Peninsula in the East promise an unforgettable experience in the heart of nature during your language study trip to Russia. And at the Black Sea, you can expect Mediterranean flair, a fun swimming experience and all kinds of water sports.
