UNN International students take part in "Shrovetide - Russian Traditions" programme
A delegation comprising 40 international students of Lobachevsky University representing 10 countries took part in the event that marked the beginning of the Shrovetide week. "Shrovetide - Russian Traditions" educational and entertaining programme was held in the framework of the project "Nizhny Novgorod - Russia’s Youth Capital".
This vibrant and engaging event brought together a large number of students of different nationalities who enthusiastically plunged into the atmosphere of Russian traditions. Students enjoyed taking part in master classes: making amulets, decorating a Shrovetide scarecrow, fortune-telling and playing traditional Shrovetide games. The most popular master class was the pancake making workshop.
The primary goal of the event was to show international students and festival guests Russian hospitality and to introduce them to Russian traditions.
According to Emilian Generalov of the UNN International Students Support Office, the students were very happy to take part in this remarkable and cheerful festival. They enjoyed the friendly and warm atmosphere that gave them the feeling of having fun and many new impressions.
