The warm season of the young “Baby Summer” gave a great opportunity to second-year students of the Faculty of Finance and Economics – members of the group “English Club” of NASAA Foreign Languages, meet after quarantine restrictions, enjoy communication with each other, learn more about the history and cultural heritage of the city, where they live and study.
On September 14, 2021, the students of group 20.04 visited a walking tour of the historical center of Kyiv “Kyiv – the Historical, Cultural and Business Center of Ukraine”, which was conducted for them by the curator and moderator of the circle Iryna Stogniy.
The tour began with a walk along the Landscape Alley, which opened up the picturesque landscapes of the ancient city. Students got acquainted with the tragic history of the Tithe Church (Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin), made a wish near the 400-year-old linden tree – a symbol of the Old Kyiv Mountain. Then we walked along St. Andrew’s Descent, admiring the works of masters of folk art and the exquisite architecture of St. Andrew’s Church and the mystical beauty of the apartment house Richard’s Castle Lion’s Heart.
The meeting ended on Kontraktova Square and a visit to the Holy Ascension Florivska Monastery.
The members of the circle spent time with pleasure and benefit, deepening their knowledge of the history of the city and expanding the vocabulary of the English language.
“… The walk was quite successful! We visited the time machine, traveled from VIII to XXI centuries. Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about the history of our capital. “
