This article was originally written for the Caravel, a student-run international affairs newspaper affiliated with Georgetown University. To celebrate the World Cup 2018, I am reposting it here to share with all of you.
Read this short feature to learn about my native city of Kazan, one of the twelve Russian cities hosting the World Cup this year. It will host its first game–France vs Australia–on June 16th, be sure to check it out!
Oh, and fun fact: This is the first article I ever wrote for a publication as a wee college freshman.
