The history of Russia roots back to ancient times. The country holds a special place in the history of the world having absorbed a lot both from the East and from the West and combining a number of seemingly incompatible features. It amazingly weaves together all possible patterns of culture, traditions, and history of different nations living together and forming a bright and a colorful “patchwork”.

It embraces 11 time-zones and 6 climatic areas – from polar regions of the northern taiga and tundra to humid subtropics of Sochi and moderate monsoon climate of Vladivostok, located by Sea of Japan.

dedicated to the Soviet legacy, are truly one of a kind.
