This post highlights some of our most popular, fun, interesting, and unique shares that took place on The Russian Store’s Facebook page. Now you can see some of the greatest Russian things all in one little post, instead of scrolling through years of posts.
Nine fantastic Russian themed photos:
1. Hot-Air Matryoshka
A magnificent hot air balloon shaped just like a traditional Red Roses matryoshka nesting doll from Russia! Everyone loves this photo! :)
2. Do you Google?
This beautiful illustration was done by a young Russian artist for Doodle-for-Google. It is one of many lovely interpretations done for the contest in 2012, which was the first year it was hosted in Russia. The contest's theme was "My City. My Country." By Anastasia Nelaeva of Olenegorsk.
3. Barbie is so nice...
Ms. Matryoshka – "Barbie let me borrow her Ferrari! Who wants to go for a ride?"
4. Want to go to the opera?
The best Russian ad ever? Created by Scholz & Friends Berlin and released in June 2005.
5. McCaviar anyone?
You wont find anything like this in the US! Many European countries have tried this sort of thing, with fast food lobster burgers and such, but they never stick around too long.
6. Vodka anyone?
An impressive matryoshka style bar. Painted beautifully, just like those nesting dolls.
7. The most beautiful port-a-potties
Khokhloma style toilet; making the dirty deed a little bit nicer!
8. Russian kitty!
Pallas’s cat, also called the manul, is a small wild cat found in the likes of Russia and Central Asia. Pallas’s cat was named after the German naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776 under the binomial Felis manul.
9. The coolest cement mixer.
