When nature is closer than you think

"It’s like in the woods!" – that's what people say when they come to Akademgorodok for the first time. You can easily meet a hedgehog on your way to the university, or see the wild ducks living in the local pond; and the squirrels are so used to living next to people that they do not run away, and happily pose for Instagram.
