If I had to choose one word to describe Russia, I’d choose BIG. Not just because Russia is the biggest country in the world, but also because there is so much to see and do! At the schools, you might find yourself at a performance proudly watching students sing a song in English and during your free time, doing something cultural like seeing Swan Lake or something more active like ice-skating, snowboarding, or walking through Russia’s beautiful parks!
