– Inspiration should be developed… Hundreds of amazing and wonderful children are having a rest here (at Orlyonok), and judging by what I see, they do care about sports. Hundreds of children want to go to Orlyonok, and those who have visited it, recall it with warmth want to return here again. Children actively participate in the Olympic patrol program. They love it! “
