To feel yourself absolutely ready for Russia it is certainly a must to learn what drinks the Russians traditionally drink besides vodka, what they eat (Russian cuisine), and how they cook (recipes).

You can even go to the extent of finding out rules of taking the traditional Russian banya (steam bath) and the arrangement of Russian stove.
