Their shedules include classes of ancient Gaelic and Irish Gaelic taught by Moscow State University professors and members of Russian Celtic Society, and public lectures about Celtic history and culture.

Also there are art workshops which use Celtic motives in painting, books and fashion design, and for 3 years already Moscow's Rakurs Radio has been presenting programs on Celtic music and culture.

aimed to attract the attention of as many people as possible. That's why
the Russian Celtic Society is opened to everyone, regardless of their
