Thank you -- "spa-sea-bo" -- for your interest in the Russian Culture newsletter from BellaOnline.com. The free weekly newsletter offers up to date information on the very topics you enjoy reading about in Russian history, customs, holidays, folklore, recipes, spirituality/religion, language, and the arts.
Here is an example of what you can expect in a new and informative article each week:
Russia’s history is as vast as the land area that encompasses. Take a trip through time -- from the era before the czars ruled to Ivan the Terrible, through the Romanov dynasty and beyond. Who were the Tatars? How and why did the Romanov dynasty commence and when did it end?
Russia has produced a multitude of creative individuals: writers and poets (Russia’s famous and possibly favorite son, Pushkin) musicians, painters, sculptors, scientists. We’ll explore their contributions and the wide world of literature and poetry.
Russian recipes, food and drinks with easy to follow instructions utilizing readily available ingredients. Many of the traditional Russian recipes are naturally healthy: Russians were health conscious long before it became fashionable, basing their diet on wholesome ingredients. The original cabbage soup diet will have you bringing out your biggest stockpot and making a big pot of it to share with family and friends!
Russian folktales for adults and children alike. Many times, there’s a message in each of the tales, a lesson to be learned, along with a smile. How much land does a man need, anyway?
Russian Culture, Customs and Holidays
What makes Russians unique in their thinking and habits? How do the holiday celebrations differ from other cultures? How is it that Russians have so many holidays? What is new style versus old style?
Who are these Russians? When did they live and what did they do?
In addition, the newsletter archive will easily allow you to reference past issues.
