Webinar on Russian Culture Exploration
The Russian Cultural Exploration webinar, organized by MSRS, has been held on 31 March. Participants can learn about the language, history, culture, and also travelling information of Russia.
Russia has a long history, dating back to the 5th to 7th centuries when the leaders of the Rus tribe established Kiev. In the middle of the 13th century, the Mongols destroyed Kiev and began to rule Russia for more than 200 years. It was only in the 15th century that Russia got rid of the control of the Mongols. MSRS has invited the experienced Russian language tutor and travel expert Mr George Kai to host this cultural exploration activity. The participants can benefit from his lecture on Russia culture.
Apart from the history of Russia, Mr Kai also introduced different remarkable architectures in Russia. In addition to the St. Basil's Ascension Cathedral, which is familiar to the public, the buildings of St. Sergeyev's Monastery, Peter's Palace, etc. witness the great history of Russia. Participants could get to know more about Russia in the exploration. Knowledge by reading only is not as good as real life experience through travelling. Having a chance to visit Russia will certainly gain more.
