Children come from all over: the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Austria, Argentina, Bulgaria, UK, Germany, Denmark, Israel, Spain, Italy, Canada, Qatar, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Mongolia, the Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia, the U.S., Turkey, Finland, France, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, South Korea, Syria and even children from Ukraine and Georgia!
By the way, Georgian government authorities recently
reacted very negatively when they found out that a group of their schoolchildren had gone to Artek. The children and their teachers were invited to Artek after participating in a Russian language competition in Tbilisi, and still decided to go despite the current difficulties in Russian-Georgian relations. It's good to see such examples where children themselves rise above geopolitics in order to attend Artek.
