It’s not hard to adapt in Russia especially if you have a good company
I’m Carlos and I’m 21. Right now I’m a student of Russian as a foreign language department in Siberian Federal University. I’ve lived in Krasnoyarsk for 4 month and I can say that it’s awesome. Downtown is a gorgeous place with impressive city squares. The architecture is magnificent, especially when it comes to culturally significant buildings such as theatres and concert halls. There are many monuments in the city; I believe that people treat their country’s history and culture with a great respect. The nature is also amazing. The biota of the region is quite curious. I haven’t had a chance to visit natural reserve Stolbi yet but I’ve heard many good things about the place. However, I went skiing in Bobrovi Log and in my opinion it’s an excellent ski resort with reasonable prices. The Yenisey River impresses by its vastness and power. In winter I visited Tatishev Island and it’s beauty is undoubted; the trees were covered in snow and it felt like I was in a magic land. There are cafes all over the city and one can find the one that suits him/her. It’s not hard to adapt in Russia especially if you have a good company. I’ve already met the people, they are very interesting people both in the university and outside of it.
