Veliky Novgorod Holds Hanseatic Nights Festival


On October 8-9, students from twelve leading universities of the country came to Veliky Novgorod to attend the Third All-Russian Intercollegiate Hanseatic Nights Festival of Culture and Education.

The guests of the Festival completed a theater-themed quest in the city’s historic downtown area. For completing the assignments each participant was rewarded with the traditional Novgorod drink - Nikola Kvass. The Student Photo City Guide was created during the quest. The first day of the festival completed with a laser show in Novgorod Kremlin.
