Volgograd and Cologne through the eyes of youth: a new project by the partner-cities
After a long break, the year 2020/21 has once again been designated as the Year of Germany in Russia – an especially promising initiative for Volgograd, which has not one, but two partner-cities in the FRG: Chemnitz and Cologne. With the first of them, it is on the level of school exchanges that the most active cooperation is done. In the Cologne case, though, it is college and university students who take the lead.
