The weekend trips were a major selling point for this language program. We'll travel here by bus, and there by train, and you'll see the country! Every weekend, though, something came up. The first weekend, a trip was planned and then canceled, being deemed too last minute. The next weekend, a massively-popular cucumber festival in Suzdal meant all the train tickets were sold out. (Bummer!!) This left one final chance to make a trip happen before the course ended....
|Nizhny Novgorod train station.|
... and this time, everything lined up!
Here are five clues for you- can you figure out where we traveled?
Clue #1: Third-class tickets cost $91 USD (at the last minute, of course) and we spent 8.5 hours on an overnight train.
Clue #2: The city we visited is over 1,000 years old.
Clue #3: There are dragons and cats everywhere!
Clue #4: In addition to Russian, another language is widely spoken here.
Clue #5: This city is home to the Millennium Bridge. (Some locals call it "the McDonalds Bridge".) I think it looks super cool!
What do you think- can you name this city? :)
