Gyyom Petit, a guest of Yekaterinburg and a student of the Paris Descartes University, shares his impressions about residents of the capital of the Ural: "In France, it is believed that the Russians are sullen and private people who never smile. In Yekaterinburg, I made discovery for myself that residents of the Ural are very cheerful, hospitable and welcoming people. They know how to have fun and are always ready to help".
