River Cruise on Zvezda Nevy

August 11 th, 2021

On August 11 th , the students of the University of Zurich, course teachers, and staff members of the Center of Additional Educational Programs of SPbU took a walk together.

A river cruise along Neva is one of the most unusual and beautiful ways to acquaint the city guests with St. Petersburg and its landmarks, because in order to get a better feel of the city, you need to see it from the water.

The magnificent views create a special atmosphere. An amazing route was passed; everyone admired the sunset and evening city lights. Such walks certainly bring people closer together. They allow you to better understand each other, because for learning a language, it is important not only to immerse yourself in the language environment, but also to understand the culture.
