Be ready to survive a night at dacha, learn how to dance prisyadka and khorovod, be back at Soviet time, meet Zmey Gorynych, destroy all vodka around, and... of course for all these hard tasks you need to improve your Russian language skills. But don’t worry, we are on your side: will provide you an amazing Russian language course! Even more - you are going to learn many useful phrases which will help you to deal with every tsarevna and tsarevich in our fairy land.
Also tell us what… Have you met the Little Humpbacked Horse? Well, he always looks after you and cover your back, helps you with many many challenges you are dealing with on you lifeway.
