Great Russians

Hello and welcome to my blog.

My goal is to share my personal views about my country, and publish articles about my culture as well as my own personal list of great Russians, from musicians to painters. For me, these represent my culture perfectly, and although it is only my opinion, I hope you will agree with me that they are a beautiful reflection of what Russia truly is.
My aim is not really to tell you all about these individuals, with descriptions and a complete biography, but simply to introduce you to their brilliance.
Perhaps after reading my blog, you will want to find out more about them and maybe you will even become a fan of what Russia has to offer!
