Hello there and thanks for reading my blog!
This journal explores distinctions and similarities between Russians and Brits. It aims to shed light on and provide historical justifications for the ‘backwardness’ of Russian people as well as to draw parallels between two often conflicting cultures, revealing the traits that are quite alike.
From shocking fashion habits and hilarious linguistic peculiarities to important dating customs and amusing culinary and drinking traditions, this blog covers a variety of topics that set Russians apart from the rest of the world.
Behind the scenes of this blog is an Estonian based in London, who was brought up in a Russian family and is fascinated by cultural identities and how they are formed.
Should you have more questions about the addressed topics or wish to collaborate, drop me a line on social! 🙂
P.S. If you are looking to conquer a Russian girl’s heart, you came to the right place!

I studied Russian when I was at school in the 1970s, a long time before you were born, Kristina. I really enjoyed it, but it’s so long since I spoke it that I’ve forgotten most of what I learned, sadly. Other than that, I worked in Russia in 1990 and I loved the place and the people so much that I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. Some of my Russian friends taught me a wonderful song called ‘Kogda ya pyan’ that you might know, but I could write for literally hours about how much I enjoyed the place and why. I just hope you enjoy your time here half as much as I enjoyed my time in Russia, so ‘bolshoyeh spasseebuh’ for leaving a comment on my site and best wishes to you from Dennis 🙂
You have put a wide smile on my face while I was reading your comment. I find it very pleasant when foreign people try to speak Russian, even tough it’s extremely hard to pronounce and to keep in mind. I’m very glad that you loved Russian culture, it sounds charming!
Благодарю, Kristina! xx
Thank you, Joe 🙂
