The World Cup will start next week in Russia. What do you know about this country?
The name Red Square has nothing to do with communism. It comes from the word “kransnyi” ( =“beautiful”).
When giving flowers to Russians, always give odd numbers (3, 5, 7, etc) of flowers. Even numbers (2, 4, 6, etc) of flowers are used at funerals!
Vodka, the country’s number one alcoholic beverage, comes from the word “voda”, which means “water”.
This is the first of three posts about Russia.
