Volunteers from different countries work in the Leo Tolstoy museum-reserve Yasnaya Polyana for two weeks, Vesti-Tula reports. They are working in gardens and parks of Yasnaya Polyana and learn more about Russian classics' life. These days the museum-reserve is completely multilingual.

Volunteers admit that they have came to Tula because of the deep interest in the Russian culture, history and nature, and also love for Russian literature. An architecture student Noordin Hassan Brguette said that he came to immerse into Russian culture and nature. He loves abundance of greenery and the way people treat trees in Russia.

Many Russian volunteers involve foreign volunteers who eagerly come to help and enjoy Russian cultural experience.
