With the school course Russian business environment we had the opportunity to visit Russia. This course was one intensive week in Kuopio at school and the second intensive week of the learning was in St. Petersburg in Russia. Honestly I didn’t expect that the trip to Russia will be so beautiful and so nice experience for me. This trip has everything what perfect trip should have. We have learned something new, there was a lot of free time for seeing the whole city, enough time for entertainment, there was also cultural part of the trip and spending the good time with the friends. We have learned some interesting informations about Russian business from Russian businessmen point of view. Very enriching and interesting informations about hotel management and the concept of Sokos hotel in Russia. Then we had a lot of good meals. Honestly I think that almost of my photos from this week are photos of food. We lived in very beautiful, exclusive and modern hotel, and the bed, which was there I still miss. We saw cultural show with typical Russian dance and singing. Unfortunately this programm was not allowed to take on video or take the photos. But it was very nice sample of the Russian culture. The trip was very nice also because of the group composition and very nice and helpful teachers. On the beginning I was little bit skeptical about this trip, because as an inhabitant of the postcomunist country I didn’t have really nice feelings about Russia. But suprisingly I perfectly enjoeyd this time. And this week we finnished in the typical Russian restaurant with the typical soup borsch. So big thanks to Savonia university that gave us this big opportunity!
