The Fifth "Train of Wishes" Arrives at the Terminal Station
The Awards Ceremony to praise the winners of the creativity contest for children and youth of Serbia "By the Road of Dreams" took place in the Russian House, in Belgrade, December 12. The event was organized by RZD International in cooperation with the Serbian branch of the International Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Christian Nations under the project "The Train of Wishes".

The authors of the best works got their prizes and certificates in the presence of honorable guests: the representatives of the Embassy of Russian Federation in the Republic of Serbia, the Trade Delegation of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Serbia, Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia, JSC Serbian Railways Infrastructure and other honorable guests.

RZD International has been launching annual creativity contests for the Serbian pupils since 2014, as a part of the humanitarian program implemented by the Company. The fifth contest united more than 500 children aged 8 to 19.

The contestants were to express their vision of the friendship and cooperation between Serbia and Russia in the areas of culture, history as well as railway transportation, in the form of an emblem and a motto. Participants also had an opportunity to apply for the extra category in case they came up with an illustration of the practical use of their ideas. The works were accepted in all possible formats and styles. The first thing evaluated was the creative concept, which description was also provided by the participants.

CEO of RZD International Sergey Pavlov: "The participants managed to truly surprise us and the award panel. The children deeply thought over the topic and tried their best to express their ideas. From my point of view, this is another mark of the high level of friendly relations between our countries, our cultural and historical unity."
