History

Russia is the largest country in the world with the ninth highest population. Due to their extroidinarily large size, this country has an extensive history and culture that has impacted the world. With iconic leaders such as Peter the Great and Catherine the Great, Russia has been known for their cultural and social progress throughout the ages. Peter's determination to transfrm Russia into a competing member of modern Europe and Western culture resulted in their strong army and advancements in medicine. Similarily, with Catherine the Great in power, education and religion became the main focus. Literacy throughout the nation skyrocketed, and the offical religion became the Russian Orthodox Church. Today's Russia is still highly based on the principles of its past, with the reign of rulers such as Peter and Catherine highly respected.

Culture

Like their intricate history, Russian culture is highly extensive as well. When it comes to artisty, Russian nesting dolls are iconic and show off the skill and tradition of the culture. With delicate shells carved from wood and painted with brilliantly colored designs, these pieces represent the beauty of Russia and the ingenuity to construct perfectly nested dolls. Ballet is also a huge cultural aspect of Russia. Originally used as a form of entertainment for imperial courts, men and women became so skilled that the first Ballet company was built in St. Petersburg in order to teach others this beautiful art. Composers such as Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky radically changed classic music with their genius- especially with The Nutcaracker which is still played around the world today.

This colorful and unique ornament captures the essence of Russia and would make a perfect gift or addition to your own collection. Celebrate your heritage or remember a visit to this beautiful country.
