The summer internship started in Serbia. 15 young men and women from different Russian regions, active members and leaders of the RGS youth clubs, as well Serbian students are taking part in it.
On the first day of the internship the young people went on a guided tour around Belgrade; they visited the Serbian Center of the Russian Geographical Society, the Church of Saint Mark and the Church of Saint Sava, walked through the cozy streets of the capital of Serbia and talked with representatives of the Russian Center of Science and Culture, also known as the "Russian house".
