The feedback from both students and teachers was unequivocally positive: “All participants of the event for the development of cooperation between our Academy and the Association for Assistance in the Development and Promotion of Cultural and Gastronomic Tourism. And we will do this, and we will begin to do it today.” – commented Kalinichev
