The main goal of the FINA Development Centre scholarship holders is to improve sports results. However, in addition to sports training, they get acquainted with the city, sights and culture of Tatarstan.
On July 28, the athletes spent a day in the Kamskoe Ustye. The Kamsko-Ustinsky district of the Republic of Tatarstan is famous for its Volga landscapes, fish spots, delicious cheese.
Our day started with the beach «Leto» and its incredible view of the Volga river. This place is especially popular not only among local residents, but also among guests from neighboring towns of the Republic of Tatarstan. There our athletes played beach volleyball, paddled, swam and sunbathed.
After an active rest on the beach, our team went for a barbecue at the hotel «Kurai» overlooking the confluence of the Volga and Kama rivers. The owner of the hotel also invited us to visit the cheese factory «Camembert», which produces cheeses from local milk following a genuine French recipe. There we watched the whole process of cheese making, how cheese is boiled and shaped. We also tasted the fresh product.
