Moscow was founded in 1147 by Prince Yuri Dolgoruki. His father was the famous Vladimir Monomakh, Prince of Kiev. Prince Yuri built a fortress where the Moskva river and the Neglinnaya river meet. This became an important trading post and then the capital of the rapidly growing principality of Moscow. It was burnt down by the Tatars several times.

In 1712 Peter the First moved the capital to St. Petersburg, a strategic point on the Baltic Sea, but Moscow continued to be the most typical Russian city. It became the capital again after the Great October Revolution. On the initiative of V.I.Lenin, in 1918, new Government moved from Petrograd to the Kremlin and Moscow became the capital of the first socialist state.

Moscow is one of the largest cities in the world. Like Kiev and Rome it is situated on the seven hills. Moscow was built outward from its heart, the Kremlin, which was originally an island. The map of the city today looks like a wheel with broad spokes leading out to concentric avenues.

Moscow is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has a dramatic past made real and magnificent by the Kremlin and other monuments. It is not only a seat of the government. There are such institutions as the Academy of Science, Moscow University and a number of Higher educational establishments here. Here are the Bolshoi Theatre, the Moscow Art Theatre, the Kremlin Palace of Congresses and other well-known theatres.

Moscow is also an important industrial and transport centre. It is one of the most important railway centres. Moscow Canal is of a great importance as Moscow is a significant port deep inside the country.

The most magnificent sights of Moscow are the Kremlin and Red Square. The symbol of the Kremlin is the Spassky Tower with its ruby star which shines from the tower at night. This is a very old tower. In fact it is over 500 years old. It was built in 1491 as the Frolovski Tower and about 400 years ago it was renamed the Spassky Tower. It is 71 metres high. The Spassky Tower is one of the twenty towers of the Moscow Kremlin. The brick wall around the Kremlin is two kilometres long.

The clock on the Tower is known to everybody as "Kremlyovskie Kuranty" (Kremlin Chimes) and was first mounted in 1851-52. The hour-hand is 2,97 metres long, the minute-hand - 3,28 metres.

Let me tell you something about students life at the Tver Agricultural Acade-my and my impressions of it. At first it was all so new. There were new customs, rules and regulations.

There are more than 2000 students at our academy this year. The students are mainly from the Tver province but there are a plenty of others; as you can see, there are students who came here from different parts of the country.

The Tver Agricultural Academy was founded in 1972. The Academy is situated in five buildings. They are modern and of a good design. The Academy has the following departments: the agronomical, the economical, the zooengineering and the department of mechanization of agriculture. There are various chairs at the Academy, among them is the chair of foreign languages. Teachers and assistants deliver lectures and direct the practical training of the students.

Our first lecture usually begins at half past eight and that is why I get up at seven o'clock, do my morning exercises, make my bed, have breakfast and leave for the Academy. As I live far from the Academy I get there by bus. I'm always in time for the lessons. I listen to the lecturers, make notes, have practical training and conduct many interesting experiments. In the afternoon we are free. We have our dinner in the Academy dining-room. There is a large library at the disposal of our students which provides us with textbooks and literature on special subjects. Periodicals are provided for reading in the reading-hall as well as at the chairs.

Time passes quickly. In the evening I usually walk in the park, go to see my friends, watch TV or read newspapers and books.

There are many clubs and societies at the Academy. Sporting activities are numerous.
Answer the following questions:
1. When was the Tver Agricultural Academy founded?

2. Where is the Academy situated?

3.How many departments are there at the Academy? What are they?

4.What is the number of students there?

5.What societies and clubs are there at the Academy?

6.Do students go in for sports? What is your favourite sport?

7.When did you enter the Academy? What department do you study at?

The town of Tver stands on the great Russian river Volga. Tver is one of the oldest Russian towns and it is an administrative, industrial and cultural centre of the Tver province.

Tver was founded in the 12th century by the people of Novgorod and played an important part in the early history of our country. In 1755 Tver became the principle town of the Tver province.

Many famous Russian writers came to Tver, some of them lived there. The great fable-writer Krylov passed his childhood and youth in Tver. A.S.Pushkin visited Tver several times and even wrote one of the chapters of his "Onegin" here. The great Russian writer M.E.Saltykov-Shedrin was the vice-governor of our town during three years.

In the second part of the 19th century Tver became a large industrial town. Here appeared large textile mills and a railway carriage building plant.

Among the enterprises built after the Great Patriotic War are: a printing and publishing combine which turns out millions of copies of textbooks and magazines and a combine of children' books; an artificial fibre combine; an artificial leather combine; an excavator plant and many others.

Tver has become a big cultural centre. There are many libraries, about ten cine-mas, more than twenty clubs and palaces of culture. We can visit several museums, an Art Picture Gallery, many exhibitions, Drama Theatre, Children Theatre, Puppet Theatre, Philharmonic Society, Circus.

Tver is the town of students. There are many higher educational establishments both state and private in Tver. Thousands of students from all over the country and from abroad study at the Tver State University, the Tver State Polytechnical University, the Tver State Military University, the Tver State Medical Academy, the Tver State Agricultural Academy.
