Why We Love the Russians
Ice hockey, vodka, Sochi, pro tennis player Maria Sharapova, beef stroganoff, Saint Basil's Cathedral and the Moscow Royal Ballet are just a few reasons why we love the Russians.Filed under:
Moscow Royal Ballet
Russia is known for its excellence in fine arts. We love watching dancers from the Moscow Royal Ballet, accompanied by the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, perform to Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake.” The country has also cranked out several unforgettable artists, including ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and composer Igor Stravinsky.
