Culture

Since the 8th century, Varangians from southern Scandinavia penetrated the area of ​​today’s Russia and founded the Kiev Empire and trade with Byzantium. The Russian Grand Duke Vladimir was baptized in 988. The introduction of Orthodox-Byzantine Christianity marks the beginning of Russian civilization. The churches with the characteristic onion domes and the gilded domes of the splendid monasteries of Sergiev Posad or Suzdal are evidence of the old Russian architecture. The painting is shaped by the numerous icons that are part of the interior decoration of Russian churches.

Russian high culture began at the end of the 18th century and flourished in the 19th century. The poet A. Pushkin , the novelists L. Tolstoy and F. Dostoyevsky, and the playwright A. Chekhov appeared in the literature. Ilja Repin (* 1844, † 1930) created paintings that realistically reflect the time. The composer P. Tchaikovsky wrote pieces of music for the world-famous Russian ballet.

After a creative and productive period until 1930, artistic development suffered from the restrictions imposed by the censorship of the communist regime in the 20th century. Boris Pasternak (* 1890, † 1960) was not allowed to publish his novel “Doctor Schiwago” (1957). A. Solzhenitsyn was sent to a labor camp (GULAG) and then exiled. The composers of the 20th century include D. Shostakovich and S. Prokofiev who among other things wrote the music saga “Peter and the Wolf” (1936). Writers sought protection from censorship in children’s and youth literature. Fairy tales, picture books, prose and poetry have been written in large numbers since the 1920s. Cartoons, in Russian »multiki«, take a critical look at Soviet society.

Russian folk culture is known for its fairy tale treasures, such as “Father Frost” or “The Witch Baba Yaga”. The traditional musical instrument is the balalaika. The matryoshka, painted wooden dolls placed one inside the other, has become a symbol of Russian folk art.

In addition to Russian-language popular music, Ėstrada, Russian pop (“Popsa”) is very popular. Chansons and the so-called crooks songs, which are set in a criminal environment, also find many fans.

The most popular sports include soccer, ice hockey, handball, basketball and tennis, as well as boxing. The sport of chess looks back on a long tradition. Competitive sport has been particularly encouraged since the Soviet era. However, the serious accusation was raised against Russia that the state systematically uses doping substances in the performance centers. Over 100 Russian athletes were therefore excluded from the 2016 Summer Olympics.

National symbols

The national flag valid today corresponds to the trade flag of the tsarist empire; it was reintroduced during the coup in August 1991. It shows three horizontal stripes of equal height in white, blue and red. The coloring goes back to Tsar Peter the Great, who, after his stay in Holland, set the reverse colors of the Dutch flag for Russian seafaring; later the white and blue stripes were exchanged. The colors in this order are also considered Pan-Slavic colors. – The national coat of arms, which has been in force since the end of 1993, shows a golden double-headed eagle on a red background, the one with Peters’ three historical crownsis decorated and holds scepter and orb in its claws. On the chest the eagle is covered with a red shield on which St. George kills the dragon. This shield is also the coat of arms of Moscow.

National holiday is June 12th (day of Russia). The date refers to the RSFSR’s declaration of independence in 1990. Check petwithsupplies to see Russia Travel Guide.
