On June 8th, the Russian House hosted a quest based on Pushkin’s fairy tales. It was assumed that the little ones would rely on the help of their parents. But older children decided that they could help their younger friends on their own.

The questions were very difficult. The answers were hidden in nuts, at the bottom of an artificial lake, in secret writings. But this did not deter our young fairy tale experts. They completed the tasks with honor. And you? Are you ready to find the answers to the questions?

Ready? Then let’s go.
