Perfect road, no traffic, a huge IT complex and chat with the mayor of the city in the Telegram. All these are the realities of the Russian city, which appeared just a few years ago. Innopolis is located in Tatarstan. About how life works in Innopolis and convenient to make an appointment at the clinic via the Internet bot to the correspondent of RIA Novosti was told by the inhabitants of the «city of the future».

Arthur Boyko, student at the University «Innopolis»

Winter 2016 I read about what the city is like to go to University «Innopolis», was selected, and in August moved. I wanted to enter this University because the University is really the necessary items. We do not study what is not useful in practice, so do not have to divide the courses and not very useful. All teaching is in English.

The universities in my town, I do not consider, and with others having a lot of problems — from the dorms and ending with the financial issues. And in Innopolis good fellowship, do not need to write a bunch of papers, and many other cool bonuses for students.

For example, I recently went to the hackathon with the team, the trip was paid for by the University. The scheme is very simple: have applied through the special form written report — the money for the tickets and accommodation I received, together with a scholarship. Even for students open free driving school in winter and provide free rental of ski equipment and tickets on the slope.

In our family the main entertainment — sports complex. We go there all the time. Nearby there is a ski slope, only a 15-20 minute walk where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and tubing, and in summer there is Golf club.

Another fun bar with fabulous burgers for 350 rubles and a pizzeria. The average bill for a five — 2000 rubles. If you get bored, you can drive for an hour to Kazan.

Around the city is by walking. Someone rides a bike. One young man even in winter it moves. In General, in summer, free Shuttle buses, and at other times of the year — a bus. The schedule can always be found with the help of a Telegram bot.

Recently we have developed a bot «Inna». It’s a Concierge service that answers all the questions. For example, the rental of skis, organizations and so on.

My children go to school. Today there are about 170 people. In all classes is strictly up to 15 children, because each must be an individual approach. The school has the items with IT-bias, such as robotics and coding. My son is in first grade, however, goes to coding. He returns home and says: «Mom, I need pokodit».

Arrived from Krasnoyarsk. Atmosphere is cozy, almost all know each other. And very safe, which is good for children. And purely because the city has no factories and enterprises. Nature is nearby, the air is fresh. And everywhere good free Internet.

My children go to kindergarten. In Krasnoyarsk state kindergarten does not suit us, so we gave them in private. And here we have the state, and we are pleasantly surprised by the level of education and quality services. The local kindergarten is not only not inferior to the private in Krasnoyarsk, but surpasses it.

I most often travel by car: it is important to quickly get from one point to another, but it still takes a maximum of five minutes. And if you want to walk from one end of town to the other on foot in 20 minutes.

There is not much entertainment. But the main is. In summer outdoor cinema. While only in town for one grocery supermarket «Bahetle», but now there is a repair in the room where you will enjoy a «roundabout».

All communication in the city is organized via Telegram. It is very convenient: there is a city-wide chat, chat people, a group of parents, a group of educators and parents. We regularly send video and photo reports on how classes are held in children. You can sign up to the doctor through the bot network, and order in «Bahetle» products.

I loved Innopolis. Initially, the husband burned the idea to move, but I was his idea was alarmed. However, after living here for a year and a half, I began to see the city. In megacities around you a crowd of people, but at the same time you can feel lonely. There are not many residents, but all are very close.
