Travelling is also a good decision.

Everybody likes travelling. And 15th of April inhabitants of city Ulyanovsk, Russia had the opportunity to travel all over the world without leaving their motherland.
The festival "Around the world" took place inside of Ulyanovsk State University. It was event for real travellers, for people who like learning languages and just for active youth of the city. Approximately 100 interested people have gathered together in this event and everybody has become pleased of it.
Festival which was organised by the squad of the active youth of the city named "Active youth League" involved 2 parts. First and the biggest one was the quest - the special form of activity when people devided on a groups with leader attend different stations. In our case stations were world"s countries. Every country had something unique, different. For example, in Argentina station all guests had the opportunity to try to learn the sensitive kind of dance - Tango, in Mexico people found themselves at the celebration of its national feast "The day of deads". Our guests even have become participants of the story of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in England, learnt a lot of interesting facts about Germany, America, China, India, France, Georgia and of course about Russia.
The second part of festival was no less interesting - it was the press-conference with foreigners. We, Russians, have always been interested in conversation with people from other countries. And all participants had the opportunity to talk to our guests from Egypt. They were asked about absolutely everything: about their story of life, about their motherland, their language, about the experience of living in Russia which completely differs from Egypt by its climate.
