Around Moscow we stroll!

On the 2nd of August we had an unforgettable walk around the Tverskoy boulevard and nearby lanes with the young people from psychoneurological institution N11. It was a real journey for them!

Besides, we learnt that long-long time ago the famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin walked along the same streets and even stayed in some of the old houses we had seen on our way. 

We enjoyed ice-cream in the Russia’s first, “historical”, McDonald’s.

As we went on, we noticed a children’s playground and started to swing on swings, slide down a slide and even overcame rope barriers with enthusiasm – it was a complete plunge into childhood! Moreover, we tried ourselves as sportsmen at special spots-grounds arranged at the boulevard in the framework the Moscow Summer Festival. 

It was hard to tear our young people off from the basketball baskets, mini-bowling, mini-golf and skateboard slides. Everyone (without exceptions!) appeared to be very sportive.

On our way further we also saw many theatres, monuments, churches, took pictures in front of the Moscow Conservatory and St. Andrew’s Anglican Cathedral where the Education Center “Step Up” is located.

It was the first time the young people visited this cathedral and saw the real organ.

In short, everyone was extremely happy with the journey. Thank you very much to volunteers Irina and Vera, teachers Natalia, Lyosha and tutor Maria for accompaniment!
