For everyone who loves travelling!

On June 4, the first HSE Travel fest will be held in a wonderful place in the city centre. We will create an amazing world for a day: our guests will hear some relaxing music, taste the food from around the world, see bright colors and art objects in the Media courtyard, and, of course, enjoy the sunny weather.

We believe that travel helps us to learn more about the world, to meet amazing people and even change lives. So we have invited international students, travelers, student organizations, artists, photographers, large companies and other travel enthusiasts so that we could feel the summer energy together.
