M.V. Lomonosov, the great Russian scholar of the eighteenth century, wrote, “Russia’s power will grow with Siberia.”
 
What does Siberia look like? What makes it so interesting? What is its nature? What kind of people live here? What do they do? The Summer School gives an opportunity to see one of the most unique Russian regions and to affirm or dispose of European stereotypes about Siberia while learning the Russian language in Tomsk.
