Bulgaria hosts "Friends, our union is wonderful!" Festival once again


The Black Sea coast of Bulgaria once again hosts the 8th International Festival "Friends, our Union is wonderful!". This year the festival takes place in a new place – the Balkanika-Rositsa international sports center. It is located on a peninsula near the spa town of Kiten. Residential camp buildings, buried in fruit trees and flowers, will open their doors to guests and participants of the festival.

The festival traditionally unites Slavic students studying Russian. This year, the number of participants has expanded significantly. If earlier it was a meeting of European students, now student teams from universities in Turkey, Tunisia and Japan also take part in the festival. A student delegation from Pushkin State Russian Language Institute participates in it for the first time. It includes representatives of countries such as Vietnam, Indonesia, Romania, Tajikistan, Serbia, Bulgaria, as well as volunteers from the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia. European countries are represented at the festival by teams from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Montenegro and Estonia.

2019 is declared the Year of the Theater in Russia. The festival program will also be filled with references to theater. Participants will be able to try themselves as directors or actors and, by reading the plays of famous Russian playwrights, enjoy the beauty of the “great, powerful and beautiful” Russian language.

The festival program includes meetings with famous actors, directors and writers. Within the framework of special workshops, each participant will be able to expand their knowledge of Russia and its culture. A special seminar will be organized for the leaders of student teams on the latest methods of teaching Russian as a foreign language.

It is planned to hold contests, competitions, games in the fresh air at the festival. The weather at this time in Kiten is excellent: water temperature is + 23 degrees C, and air temperature is + 25 degrees C.

Each participant will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in an atmosphere of friendship and interest in the Russian language and culture.

There are not more than 10 actors and directors from Greece who were graduated from Russian Institute of Theatre Arts (GITIS). And there were no doctorates in art history. The first is to become Vasiliki Veltsista who is going to submit her thesis this year.
Sergey Sinelnik, an honored traveler of Russia, has covered tens of thousands of miles in sea runs, thousands of kilometers through great deserts of the world, climbing the highest peaks, and that's not all. And yet his main passion is sea. For several years now Sergey, his wife and children have been circumnavigating the globe on the wooden Pilgrim, a replica of traditional boats of Russian coast-dwellers – the Koch. And before that, he reached the shores of Australia on the Rusich boat, which is actually just a large wooden skiff. And the ancient Slavic vessel was a smash there.
