Manners, Customs and Traditions

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.
