The country has a turbulent, and often violent history, and most Russian people are tired of hearing Westerners pass judgement - generally negative ones, at that - on the Soviet Union. Many Russians over the age of 30 are proud of both its triumphs and tragedies, and they probably know much more about the period than you. Younger Russians are less likely to be offended as they view the Soviet Union as an old empire, or just have a patchy knowledge of something which collapsed after many of them were born online.

You can discuss a European cultural realm, a Western European cultural realm, a Scandinavian or Nordic cultural realm, or even smaller realms.

While they had to endure the social connotations of choosing this profession and the abuses of their owners, one can observe an outlet for serf women to escape their lives in the countryside, for better or for worse http://tukanalnoticias.tukanal.tv/books/three-farces-russian-texts.

During the first years after the breakup of the Soviet Union, domestic tourism declined sharply, but has regained ground since then.

With a total area of 17,075,200 kilometers (6,592,735 square miles), Russia covers about one-eighth of the world's land surface. Russia is 60 percent larger than the world's second-largest country, Canada.

Russia has paid a high social price for its rapid progress in the transition from communism. Under communism, economic growth was restrained but there was a very low level of inequality. Most workers made roughly the same income. Extremes of high and low incomes were rare. Since embarking on a market economy, Russia's rapid macroeconomic and political reforms created anxiety among the citizens who came to expect a modest but dependable lifestyle , e.g. http://tukanalnoticias.tukanal.tv/books/the-guest-from-the-future-anna-akhmatova-and-isaiah-berlin.
