Our list for the official visit to Yaroslavl 25 May to 3 June 2015 is now closed. However, start thinking about next year! We would be interested to hear about what dates might suit you best in 2016. Traditionally, we have travelled to Yaroslavl late May - early June but there might be other dates people might prefer. Please let us know.

Note for English language speakers:
This is about the 2015 Competition for English language students in Yaroslavl. The competition has been held for the past 18 years, with support from Exeter Yaroslavl Twinning Association. The 2015 theme is "National Traditions in Great Britain and Russia"
Tatyana Katsatkina gave an interesting talk at Demidov State University, Yaroslavl based on her list of Recommended Literature. A number of our members were present. All the the titles in her list were written and published in English. You may see books in the list that you have already read, but doubt you will also find some interesting reading recommendations.
A report on our Russian Christmas Dinner at Exeter College was published in our local Exeter Newspaper the "Express and Echo" on 15 January 2015. You can read it here: Report on Russian Christmas Dinner
