On November 8, 2019, an on-site training session was held at the Bank of Russia Museum for fifth-year students of the Institute of Economics, Management, and Finance of the Russian New University (RosNOU) studying in the specialty "Customs".
The lesson was organized by Associate Professor of the Department of Customs Tatyana V. Pavlina as part of the study of the discipline "Currency Regulation in Various Customs Regimes".
“The lesson was devoted to the topic “The Russian Ruble: Milestones of History” and revealed many amazing facts from the past of one of the most ancient current currencies in the world,” – said Tatyana Pavlina. “Students learned how old Russian and Arab coins were connected, why pieces were cut off from the hryvnia, which banknote could be paid enough to buy for the whole street, why money was sewn onto clothes, and why at different times they were called “Katenki”, “grandmothers” and “wooden”?”
Students Elena Ashikhmina, Evgenia Gafurova, Ekaterina Lapshina, Olesya Maslova shared their impressions of the on-site training session:
“We liked how the tour was organized. We learned a lot of interesting and useful information about the history of the Russian ruble, about how, since the 10th century, money has changed in Russia, about all the important historical events related to our national currency. We were also impressed by the internal organization and the building of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation as an architectural structure, it looks very beautiful and harmonious.”
