We conclude the Cologne entries to the "Nostalgia Tourist" project with a videotour by Benedict Kolbe, who will take us to, maybe, the most unusual landmark of the project - the memorial cemetery for the Soviet war prisoners who perished in concentration camps during the Second World War.
"All that we want is to live in peace, but to do it, we need to take a close look into the past", Benedict comments.
In the next entry of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project, our compatriot Daria Iurova, who is currently reiding in Cologne, will take us through and along her favourite street in Cologne.
Walking with Daria, you will catch a glimpse of the city's most ounstanding landmarks, as well as cosy restaurants and romantic cafes.
In the new video by the Cologne participants of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project, you will be welcomed by Emine Ilkbahar and Berfin Celik.
The young ladies will take you to the center of Cologne -- emptied by the pandemic, but still well-loved, beautiful and... delicious!
In the second Cologne video of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project, we introduce to you Yvonne Ganschow and Markus Menrath with their video tour around the most beautiful places in Volgograd's German partner-city.

Today, at last, we are getting down to the German participants of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project by Volgograd and Cologne.
Our first tour guide is Emina Bajric, who will be talking about her favorite outdoor places, which cheered Cologne residents up even during the pandemic.
In the new article about the "Nostalgia Tourist" we would like to introduce to you the next amateur tour guide: a first-year student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch Ekaterina Abakumova.
In her video, she is talking about the Komsomol Garden, also known as the "central children park": before the pandemic came, most Volgograd residents remembered it for its amusements rides and the unforgettable "animals plus ticket-counters".
Today, our series of publications dedicated to the Volgograd participants of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project by Volgograd and Cologne is coming to an end. The last – but not the least! – entry was done by Angelina Eremeeva, a second-year student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
She decided to concentrate on the most beautiful places in Volgograd, as well as the architecture that she admires every day.
In the follow-up to the "Nostalgia Project", meet a collaboration group of four students from the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch: Elvira Mamedova, Susanna Safaryan, Polina Petrova, and Yulia Selivanova.
Their joint video is meant to show Volgograd the way its local residents rather than tourists see it. In it, you will see both the popular landmarks and the little-known places.
Prepare to meet the next participant of the Volgograd – Cologne joint video project "Nostalgia Tourist". Today on air is Olga Lepekhina, a second-year Economics student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
Her video tour begins right in the Volgograd International Airport, which will make you feel exactly like a foreign tourist.
As you well know, in 2021, the partner-cities Volgograd and Cologne are carrying out a joint project "Nostalgia Tourist". The video tour you are about to see was filmed by Tatiana Khablova, a first-year student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
The focus of her video is the Peace Street – one of the first streets to be restored in Stalingrad after the Great Patriotic War, the heart of the new city and the symbol of its renaissance.
In the new episode of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project, meet another creative tandem – Mikhail Kozlovtsev and Elina Ryazanova, both majoring in "State and Municipal Management" at the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
In this video, its authors decided to concentrate on the historic part of the city and elaborate upon Tsaritsyn, the ancestor of the modern Volgograd, whose past is reflected in the numerous unique landmarks peppered around today's streets.
Today, the tour guide waxing poetic about the pre-pandemic sights in her native town is Diana Fomina, a third-year student of Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch majoring in "Economic Security".
Diana's video is dedicated to Volgograd sights and places connected with the Cossack history and culture. Cossack blood runs in Diana's family, and her whole childhood had been filled with her grandfather's stories about their daily life and traditions.
In the new episode of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project, we introduce to you a group of three video operators and amateur journalists: third-year students of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch Alena Karpova and Diana Batyrova and their sempai Ilya Babichev.
In their video, the three students decided to address the city's historic part, and no place can pull it better than the Old Sarepta – a museum reserve established in the territory of a German settlement.
In our new article on the topic of "Nostalgia Tourist", we would like to introduce to you the next video maker – Pavel Bulychev, a second-year student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
The sights he chose for his video are the ones that best reflect the history of our city: Panorama museum, Pavlov House, Mamay Hill and the Planetarium. "In childhood, I loved going there to listen about their history and the events they are connected with", comments Pavel.
Today's participants from the "Nostalgia Tourist" Russian-German project had united into a large creative group. Meet the first-year students – Elina Kalmykova, Irina Riabova, Sabrina Mohammad Omar and Semen Samarin.
"For everyone, Volgograd is a city where all sights are somehow related to war. The Planetarium is directly connected with Germany, so we thought we absolutely had to mention it. The Peace Street is a place with unique atmosphere, a place that is so good for walking. And the Embankment – well, it is Volgograd's signature landmark, so we could not leave it out."
Today, a tour around Volgograd is given by a duet of most creative guides: first-year students of Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch Julia Rudova and Alina Smirnova, who are both majoring in the Psychology of Employment Activity.
The frames you see in the young ladies' video are a combination of what Alina and Julia filmed themselves with the best shots of Volgograd Municipal TV and some footage by quadcopter pilots. The resulting short movie is dedicated to the landmarks and places that give Alina and Julia a surge of energy and pride for their city.
Today, on air is Alexey Stepanov, a fifth-year student of School No. 19 situated in Volgograd's Central district, and his older and more experienced co-author Anastasia Zaitseva, a second-year student of the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
Their video is dedicated to just landmark, but a very spectacular one – the first Fire Observation Tower built back in the time when our city was called Tsaritsyn.
A third-year Economy major Veronika Shegay and a post-graduate student training in "City and State Management" Arkadiy Avagimov from the Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch have dedicated their joint video to the only Planetarium in the region – which, as they feel, is sadly overlooked by many Volgograd residents and tourists.
In her video, Alena gathered the places that she personally finds most meaningful: the park in the Tsaritsa River basin, the Volga bank, the Square of Fallen Fighters, the Peace Street and the Mamay Hill.
Today is the day when we start writing about the glorious participants of the "Nostalgia Tourist" project jointly realized by Volgograd and Cologne. On all smartphone screens today will be the first video editor: Angelina Kushnir, first-year student majoring in Sociology on the platform of Volgograd Institute of Management – RANEPA branch.
Her video is dedicated to Volgograd's Central Embankment – the go-to place for Volgograd youths and their friends, especially in summer.
