Join the Summer University and visit:

Moscow

The beautiful capital of the biggest country in the world. It is the ancient center of the Russian state with a history going back many centuries. You will see the Kremlin, Red Square and all of the famous things with your own eyes. Nowadays the city is an extraordinary metropolis of over 16 million inhabitants. This city reminds a small country, totally different from Russia outside its borders. Life never stops here. You probably heard that Moscow (as well as AEGEE-Moskva) never sleeps. Just follow the heartbeat of the city and its famous nightlife!
Moscow is the zero point of the Transsiberian railway and here the journey of your life begins!

Kazan

Kazan is the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia. This city is Russian «Third Capital». City of two religions. Muslims and Christians have lived here for many centuries in peace and harmony. And because of that, the city is an example of tolerance and respect to different nations. We will visit the highlights of Kazan, such as the Kazan Kremlin and The Qolşärif Mosque and, of course, taste a lot of local Tatar food.

Lake Baikal + Olkhon Island

Lake Baikal (which is appr. 25 million years old!) is the world’s oldest and largest freshwater lake by volume in the world. The lake, which is sometimes called “Blue Eye of Siberia” or “Pearl of Siberia”, is also one of the cleanest surface water reservoirs and you can drink water right from the lake. Baikal area has always been a holy place of Asia and is full of legends and mysteries. Local folks call it God Baikal and treat it as a living and wise creature. Many people consider it to be their power place. You will learn more about this breath-taking and never-ceasing-to-amaze place and get acquainted with the Buryat culture during your stay there.
You will also have a chance to go to one of the biggest lake islands - Olkhon - and if you are lucky enough - even to meet one of the mysterious local shamans.

Vladivostok

Vladivostok - the city located in the extreme south of the Russian Far East - is the main port and naval base of Russia. When you leave the train after the longest train-ride ever - you will at once feel the pulse of the city. Here the air is saturated with sea and salt. Here is the final stop of the Great Trans-Siberian railway road, the longest railway line in the world. Here, after 9288 kilometers behind, you will feel the world is much bigger than it seemed before.
