This section of our web site is devoted to Russian cultural heritage. Culture (from Latin "cultura" -- cultivation, rearing, education, development, honoring) is defined as "the integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon man's capacity for learning and transmitting knowledge to succeeding generations". Culture also comprises "the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group".

Russian Poetry has always been a mirror of Russian cultural heritage. This is precisely the reason why we decided to devote a separate section of our website to it.

We also highly recommend you to visit the section of Russian Legacy devoted to Russian Humor. We have already published there a number of Russian anecdotes (translated into English). They wonderfully depict Russian culture, Russian society, and Russian mindset.
