Intensive Russian Program 2018

Intensive Russian Program – Applications Accepted All Year


The historic city of Vladimir is an ideal setting in which to become immersed in Russian culture.  This 1,000+ year old city of more than 300,000 is located approximately 120 miles northeast of Moscow.  Students are met at the airport in Moscow and driven past vast forests and fields, through villages and small towns to this former capitol of ancient Rus.


During your stay you will travel to the nearby picturesque town of Suzdal, in addition to touring the historic sights of Vladimir.  These include the magnificent Assumption Cathedral and the Golden Gates, both of which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  You will become intimately acquainted with the increasingly modern shops and outdoor markets, and visit your new Russian friends in their Soviet-era apartments.
