Kyiv Around ALMA School: Statue of Anna Akhmatova

Kyiv was a very important place in the life of this amazing Russian poetess of the Silver Age (beginning of the XXth century). Here Anna Akhmatova first started to write poetry. And this year, on her 128th birthday (June 23rd) a monument was opened in Kyiv to remember and celebrate this incredible woman.

And it is only about a 20 minute walk from ALMA School! So if you are tempted to read Akhmatova's poems in the original, you are very welcome to join our little language school and learn Russian or Ukrainian as foreign :)
