Образование / Education

Russia's two historic capitals both have prominent state universities, both founded in the 18th century:

St. Petersburg State University (1724)

Moscow State University (МГУ) (1755)

The collapse of the USSR led to many changes in the world of higher education. One of the positive results was the creation of several excellent newer universities:

European University in St. Petersburg

Russian State Humanitites University (Moscow)

For the most part study of the fine arts, theater and film takes place at specialized academies rather than universities:

St. Petersburg Conservatory

Academy of Arts

State Theater Arts Academy

Moscow State Conservatory
