Students of the IPACS Presidential Academy RANEPA visited the exhibition “Terracotta Army” at VDNKh
On December 1st, students of the Institute of Public Administration and Civil Service of the Presidential Academy RANEPA and the IPACS Presidential Academy RANEPA International Cooperation Department visited the exhibition “Terracotta Army” at VDNKh as part of regular events of the International Student Club dedicated to the “Days of Culture, Cinema and Sports”.
The exhibition-reconstruction, based on the archaeological sensation of the 20th century, was accompanied by a detailed excursion about the history of the reign of the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, and the creation of the unique Terracotta Army. The pavilion, covering an area of 1,200 square meters, featured more than 150 exhibits, reconstructed in the image of the original archaeological sites.
Anastasia Gagina, a 2nd year student in the program “Analytics and Consulting in International Relations”, noted:
“I am very glad that the Institute’s International Cooperation Department gave us the opportunity to visit such a unique exhibition. We were able to enjoy recreated full-size statues of ancient Chinese warriors, their chariots, weapons, and household items, as well as a whole gallery of colorful historical national costumes”.
Karina Litovskikh, clerk of the International Cooperation Department for Outgoing Mobility of the IPACS Presidential Academy RANEPA, emphasized:
“The Institute of Public Administration and Civil Service of the Presidential Academy RANEPA is actively developing the Chinese direction. Since 2023, Chinese language has been included in curricula as a second foreign language of choice. Next semester, our students will go to Shanghai University of Political Sciences and Law as part of the academic mobility program. Enrollment for scholarship programs in educational organizations in China is also now open. Therefore, considering the active development of this direction and the interest of students, it was decided to show students the “Terracotta Army” exhibition at VDNKh”.
