"This is my first time to participate in this activity and I am very happy to live with friends from China. I hope we can become good friends." Russian youth Lilia answered questions in fluent Chinese. Youth is the future of the country and the world. Lilia said, "Friendly communication between Chinese and Russian youth will promote the friendship between the two countries in the future. This forum is a good platform. "


As youth delegates of Russia, Daniela and Anastasia believed that "every young person has his own unique creativity and personality." The forum broked regional and linguistic barriers and built a bridge between the youths of the two countries.The enthusiasm of Hunan people left them an unforgettable impression. "Although there are language barriers in communication, everyone is willing to help us. We have also made so many Chinese friends."

"I didn't expect this forum to be so diverse." Zhang Hu, the first Chinese student to attend the Sino-Russian Youth Forum, said. "In fact, many Chinese people do not know much about Russia. This Forum provides us an opportunity to understand Russia. I hope the friendship between China and Russia will become much more solid. "

Through this forum, Zhang Hu made many Russian friends. Hunan is a tourist resort. As a student from Hunan Normal University, Zhang Hu, the host, showed a little pride in his eyes. "If there is a chance, I will take these new friends to visit Orange Island, climb Yuelu Mountain, eat crayfish, and enjoy the charm of Hunan."


After the opening ceremony, the 12-day forum will be divided into four parts: the story of Hunan Province, Hunan Science and Education, Hunan Culture and Art, and Hunan Geography. In five groups, Chinese and Russian youth will experience the history and culture, folklores, scientific and technological innovation, industrial development and revolutionary roots of Hunan in an all-round way. In the process of experience, they will increase their understanding of Hunan and develop friendship with young partners.

"I believe this trip will greatly open up my mind."

Nastia from Russia, who has been learning Chinese, said that although she had studied Chinese in Russia for three years, the lack of language practice left her unconfident about her Chinese proficiency. "Such a forum is very necessary for Russian students. For me, this forum is my first chance to communicate in a pure Chinese language environment, so that I can better improve my language proficiency.

Nastia told our reporters that this was her first visit to China. Previously, she was full of curiosity about Chinese traditional culture. She was very excited when find out that this trip would also cover an introduction of Chinese history, culture and folklore. She believed that this trip will significantly open up her mind.


"I think this forum is fantastic." This is also the first time for Liliana to come to China. With the help of translation software, although her English vocabulary is limited, she had a pleasant conversation with reporters who had no knowledge of Russian. "It's interesting to communicate with people from different cultural backgrounds. I hope to make new friends this time in China. Of course, I also hope to improve my Chinese.

The longest day in Changsha |


The longest day in Changsha

Here, is the Changsha city 

that you have never seen before



Clouds dissipate,

Changsha slowly reveals herself.


As the sun rises, 

people in Changsha start their day.




The Xiang river flows north, 

around Orange Island.


The morning exercise 

is the good beginning of a day.




Ecological home,

This is our green Changsha.


Spring comes,

Lets go for an outing!




The sunlight embraces the Xiang river.


The take-out couriers 

ride through the city, 

bringing a hot meal for you.




Tianxin Pavilion is the witness 

of the history of Changsha,

Come here to feel the time passing.


Every city cannot live without these people,

They make the city better.




Come to 

Changsha international exhibition center 

to enjoy the auto show!


Flying in the spring, 

we have an incredible time.




The IFS is the new landmark of Changsha,

You can go there 

and meet with friends after work.


During busy hours after work,

They are still busy.




The fireworks above Orange Island,

Becomes a visiting card of Changsha.


For Chinese people,

There is nothing more important 

than gathering together.




In the Meixi lake Art centre,

wonderful plays is on.


After dinner, 

lets spend the time with our family,

And to see a romantic lantern show.




From the air overlooking here,

The harvest is not the same beautiful.


The night is tender,

Come and have a drink in Hualongchi, 

chase the tiring day away.




The train station in the night,

Brings countless young dreams.


At the Huangxing road night market,

The delicious snack warms young people.




Wanda plaza at night,

is more shining than the stars.


The bar on Jiefang west road is brightly lit,

And presents a carnival for the people.


Our Changsha city,

such a wonderland place!
