Manners, Customs and Traditions

With the help of this section you can prepare yourself to face the abundant Russian holidays, rich in roots and customs, including traditions of Russian wedding. To be fully versed in the subject learn about the national character and customs and habits of the Russian people.

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.

Here you can also see in what way Russian Ded Moroz differs from Santa Claus and read about peculiarities of Russian fairy tales.

To go still deeper into Russian traditions read about what were those skomorokhi that used to entertain the Russian people in olden days; learn about Russian dolls, in particular about the bold hand doll Petrushka and famous nested doll Matryoshka.

Are you keen on style and fashion? You will be amazed at the variety of clothes Russians used to wear: the traditional Russian costume consisted not only of the sarafan, now representing it all over the world, far from that.
