Program Description

White Nights! Golden Onion Domes! Royal Palaces! In June, the sun doesn't set in St. Petersburg until well after midnight and the pearl of Russian Imperial architecture glows most brightly. Known as the "Venice of the North" because of its many canals and rivers, St. Petersburg is liveliest during the four weeks of our program, when the streets are bustling and opportunities for cultural contact are the greatest.

Established in 1989, the UR Summer Program in Russia began in the provincial city of Tver before moving to Moscow in 1992 and to St. Petersburg in 1994. Each, year, approximately a dozen students from the University of Rochester and elsewhere make the trip. For many, it is a life-changing experience: "This has been the most wonderful experience of my life." "The program and the Russian people have changed my life." "What I loved about this trip cannot be expressed with words".
