Kazan (Volga Region) Federal University

I chose Kazan because Lenin and Tolstoy had studied there

I chose Kazan Federal University (KFU) for several reasons. First of all, Leo Tolstoy and Vladimir Lenin studied there. They are well-known in China, and there is a special attitude towards them in my country.

Secondly, from the official KFU website I discovered that this is one of the best universities in Russia, and the students live in the former village of the World Student Games. The teachers at KFU are very responsible. My fellow students are very friendly and always help me if I do not understand something. In my University there are a lot of different events and activities organised for the students to participate in during their free time, such as conferences, concerts, etc.

I like living in Kazan, which is commonly referred to as 'the third capital'. This city has a millennium of history and tradition. It is a beautiful location with a good climate, and there are many places of interest and great scenery. This is something that I like.

The city is developing very fast. In 2013, the city hosted the World Student Games, and in 2015 there was the World Aquatics Championship. There are many supermarkets and shopping centres here.

The people in Kazan are friendly and optimistic. In the street the drivers politely let pedestrians pass, and in the public transport passengers give their seats to the elderly. If you get lost, local people will always tell you the way and offer to help if you are carrying something heavy.

I often go to museums and theatres. This gives me with unforgettable impressions.

In Kazan I got acquainted with the locals, and we became friends; they expressed great interest in Chinese culture, and every time we meet we find something to talk about.

One more nice thing about the place is delicious food and very good tea, which is crucial for any Chinese.
