Master Russian during your stay in this Moscow hotel

A hotel in the Russian city of Moscow is offering something a little bit different to holidaymakers – the chance to learn the Russian language during their stay.

 

The Renaissance Moscow Olympic Hotel is offering the free lessons to provide a chance for guests to learn more about the unique Russian language and culture, and enrich their visit to the city and the country.RM2

 

So if you’ve ever dreamed of reading War and Peace the way Tolstoy intended, or perhaps master the works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky in their original source language, then now is your chance. Well, perhaps that’s a little too much to expect, but the free hour-long lessons are at least aimed at introducing tourists to some of the more common Russian phrases.

 

Russia is set to experience a massive boost in tourist numbers over the next four years, according to data released recently by World Travel Market. An international visitor increase of 20 per cent is expected between now and 2016, owing largely to the major upcoming sporting events that the country is hosting. Russia will welcome the World Athletics Championships and Rugby Sevens World Cup in 2013, the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014, and then the football World Cup in 2018.RM3

 

With a huge buzz surrounding Russia’s tourist industry at present, there is pressure for innovation and improvements to infrastructure to support the growth. The Renaissance Moscow Olympic Hotel certainly offers something for those looking for that extra little bit of authentic Russia during their visit.
