Do & See
Do and see things you’ve never done or seen before in your life! Visit a soviet-time apartment with sovietic relics and learn about lives of plain soviet factory workers, pioneers and farm workers. Walk along the pages of Dostoevsky somber novels and meet its heroes on the dusky embankments or shaded parks. Dress up for masquerades and ballrooms, get ready to waltz in the same magnificent dancing halls as Pushkin in the 18 century. Not only learn but also take an active part and interact!
