Why not learn Russian in Moscow? Moscow is the capital of Russia and it is a beautiful and dynamic city. It has been described as the political, scientific, historical, architectural and business centre of the country. There are many theatres, exhibitions, restaurants, bars and clubs in the city centre close to the school location.
Moscow today is the political and economic capital of Rus- sia. With over 12 million inhabitants, it is the largest city in Europe. Moscow is the New York of Russia, a city that never sleeps and where everything is possible. It is the melting pot of a collapsed empire, a mix of European and Asian.
Skyscrapers sprout up from the ground, the city centre is being ruthlessly renovated and new temples of consumerism open their doors daily. But there is another Moscow, away from Garden Ring and the Kremlin. Cosy cafes, narrow alleys, hidden artistsʼ studios and idyllic parks are as much a part of the cityscape as the gigantic wedding-cake buildings of Stalinʼs era, expensive fashion stores and fast-food chains. Moscow is a monster, but a lovable monster that is always worth visiting .
Built on 42 islands of the Neva delta, with more than 500 bridges and countless canals, the beauty of St. Petersburg lies in the unique harmony of its architecture - baroque, classicist, eclectic and art nouveau - all magnificently enhanced by the ever present water. No other city in the world possesses an intact historic city centre on the scale of St. Petersburg. And no city strives more to hold on to its priceless inheritance.
The city is as interesting by night as it is by day. New restaurants and clubs open every week. Russians like to celebrate and frequently do so into the early hours. Restaurants often close around 2am and clubs tend to stay open as late as 6am.
