As a rule, our Study Excursions are in Russian adjusted to the participants’ language level. But we also have the possibility to arrange excursions and lectures in German, French or English. Our excursions are designed as study excursions, when a guide uses “adapted” Russian to help the students not only to get some extra vocabulary knowledge, but also to practice there conversational skills. These excursions are arranged in a way that even a beginner will not waste time and enlarge their Russian vocabulary. Study excursions are the part of the educational program and are usually devoted to different topics covered at the lessons.
Students can look through the weekly program of events and choose what they like best:
At school we can help you to organize trips to different Russian cities. The full-package special travel proposals including train tickets are avaliable for our students. These trips help you to discover Russia, to learn of the dialect diversity of the Russian Language and to become more experienced in Russia’s daily life.
The capital of Russia is Moscow. Moscow is one of the biggest and most beautiful cities of Europe with more than 850-years history. “The Heart of
Russia”, that’s how the Russians call the capital, is a unique combination of unforgettable features of an old Russian city and a modern European character. The city is located on seven hills. The Kremlin with its beautiful red walls and famous towers is situated on one of them. The Kremlin is certainly the heart of Moscow.
The “New Town” (as its name means in Russian) of Novgorod is definitely not new: Dating back to the 9th century, this illustrious town, three hours south from St. Petersburg, was once a creative center of the nation. In Imperial days, it was known as Novgorod The Great, and today, it still reveals its grand heritage in its cathedrals, museums, and classic Slavic architecture. Visitors who travel to the city of 190,000 inhabitants are rewarded by its wealth of cultural attractions.

I’m completely satisfied with the course, as I wanted to have a basic look into the language and to have an idea how to study the Russian language – so the course I’ve had absolutely met my requirements. It was my first time in St.Petersburg and I was very pleased with the city and the people, their lifestyle, etc. The ProBa School is good organised and very helpful. I’ve had no problems at all. I will definitely return to Russia and stay in St.Petersburg longer, if it’s possible. Definitely fell in love with the city and the School!

Natalia is a good teacher. I was in a small group, so each student received as much attention as needed. We spoke a lot in the classroom and outside – we became a really good friends. I felt like at home! And St.Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I had a marvelous holiday here, studying and relaxing.

My teacher Maria challenges her students and teaches very well, so for me it was really helpful in learning the Russian language. My host family was very kind to me as well and spoke to me in Russian, so it also helped me a lot in the learning process.
