The staff of the Dean’s Office of Foreign Students, Arina Dautova and Daria Moiseeva, conducted a city tour for students of the preparatory faculty of USMU.
Excursion started from central street of Ekaterinburg – Lenin prospect, which was founded in 1723. Students strolled from Communards Square to the Musical Comedy Theater, located at the intersection with Karl Liebknecht Street. Arina and Daria narrated about sights based on main avenue: The Youth Palace is a center for additional children’s and youth education, the only one in the whole Urals, the Sevastyanov House, the museum of the history of jewelry and stone–cutting art, a building for the Yekaterinburg City Duma and the City Administration and other historical buildings.
The tour was conducted in two languages: both english and russian. Students were reading the the inscriptions and placards at the sights with interest and engagement, especially the parts in russian, because now they are studying english hard and actively on the course which provides them to immerse in russian culture much more.
Going up Lenin prospect, the group went past Weiner Street, which is one of the oldest streets in the city. Furthermore, students strolled along the embankment of the Iset River and Plotinka – a popular place for Ekaterinburg residents to walk.
The students were absolutely impressed by the city center, and some of them even have already expressed a desire to stay here.
