What is included in trainings and educational courses?
7trains is an educational tourism program that includes short trainings on international communications, the Russian language, myths and legends as well as on youth work through non-formal learning.
What to bring with me for the trip?
Russia is a very unpredictable country. That's why it will be great if you take to you:

1. Warm clothes:
- Be ready to windy and sometimes cold weather. Although the trip is arranged for May, in some regions you can still find snow, and temperature degrees shown by weather apps can be deceptive.

2. Comfortable shoes
- It is highly recommended to bring comfortable and suitable shoes and clothes for walking and tours in nature.

3. Souvenirs from your country:
- Bring a piece of your country to Russia. It would be helpful for you to present your country, share some stories and even encourage people to visit your home country one day.

4. Other personal belongings:
- Russia is a safe country. Don't be afraid to take phones or cameras if you really need it for this trip.
- We also encourage you to take some personal medicaments to you if needed. Although in Russia you don't have to provide a medical receipt to buy headache pills, it doesn't mean it will be easy to find everything you need.
