We see 24 UNESCO world heritage sites and experience diverse Russian history and culture. We will taste Russian food and learn to speak the Russian language. The program also offers Ferris students courses for global and culture education. You will see famous Red Square, Winter Palace and unique wooden churches in Kizhi.
