On 8 October NANR and the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands invite all the alumni to a Welcome Back! event. 

On 16 September and 7 October Dutch universities invite their alumni to spend a wonderful evening together in Moscow. 

Every autumn Dutch universities come to Moscow to present their study programmes at various educational fairs. When possible they organise dinners for their alumni. This year we thought “the more, the merrier!” and decided to host two big dinners with the participation of numerous universities. 

On 16 September the following universities are looking forward to seeing their alumni:

  • Fontys University of Applied Sciences
  • Saxion University of Applied Sciences
  • The Hague University of Applied Sciences

On 7 October the following universities are looking forward to seeing their alumni:

  • Tilburg University
  • The Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS)
  • Groningen University
  • University of Amsterdam

If you wish to join one of these events, please register below. Participation is free of charge for alumni attending their host university’s event. 


Due to the bad weather NANR will not participate in Moscow Bike Parade. Please share the pictures if you are still attending individually! 



It has become a memorable tradition among alumni – an occasion when we can relive our time in the Netherlands, meet one another and spend the day biking around Moscow. Let’s do it again this year! We will bike through the city and top the day off with a nice picnic in a park.

We suggest two alternatives - to meet at the general start and take the whole route, or to meet at Nuffic Neso Russia office and join the parade half way. In the end we will all meet at Krasnaya Presnya park, to have a nice picnic together. 

   Full route  Short route
 Meeting point        Ostankinsky proezd        Nuffic Neso Russia office 
 Meeting time  11:00  13:30
 Start time  12:00  approx. 13:45
 Route length  30 km  12 km


We decided to have an alternative start, so it will be easier for those of us who are not used to pedaling long distances. Bring your kids – they are very welcome! For the description of the general meeting point, please check the organiser’s official website

Outfit: Dress in orange! 

Bikes: You can bring your own bike or use Velobike (reduced price for this day -> only 450 RUB from 9am until 5pm + 500 RUB for seasonal abonnement) or any of the other convenient bike rental services that have popped up around Moscow in recent years. Please, be aware that you can only take folding bikes on the metro.  

Picnic: We will finish the day at Krasnaya Presnya park to have some nice drinks and snacks together. So if you lost your friends and acquaintances on the way, look for some orange T-shirts and balloons in the park.

If you would like to participate in this event please register here by clicking orange "Join" button bellow. 

 Disclaimer: Please, note that NANR is not responsible for the organisation of the Moscow Bike Parade or any damages or injuries resulting from participation in Bike Day. The Bicycle Parade is organised by the transportation department of Moscow, the Centre for Traffic Management and the Let’s Bike It project.
