HI Austin says
Spanning nine time zones and 6602000 square miles, Russia leaves a huge footprint both on the globe and in our cultural imagination. Freezing winters, controversial leaders, and beet soup all stand out in our consciousness of Russia as a nation. However, the diversity of this fascinating country often escapes mention, a critical mistake for the budding traveler.

Join Alia Pederson to learn about studying, traveling, and experiencing all that Russia has to offer in this exciting and challenging time of political change. Discuss academic culture in Russia and learn how to make the most of your time as an American doing research abroad.

Whether by foot, boat, or train, Russia is a country the modern traveler can’t afford to miss. Learn inside tips to tread beyond the Petersburg palaces, onto Kazan mosques, Soviet icons, and yurts in Buryatia. Alia has lived extensively in Russia and just returned in January 2016, after seven months abroad, thanks to an HI USA Explore the World Scholarship.
