Russian Beauty Through Cultural Contrasts


Russia is evidently a place where different cultures meet. Today, the Russian traditional culture has already been intermingled with a lot of Caucasian and Asian elements. Russia is hardly likely to become a purely European country, and that’s a good thing. It’s great when a nation can retain its unique character even if it also absorbs features of various other cultures. I like such countries very much. Such countries as Georgia, India, and Russia have really preserved their own face, full of contrasts. They are dramatically different from their neighbors; they outshine them with their diversity.
