5 Things to Do in Russia

by Steffie
(Indonesia)

1. When visiting, bring something
Don't ever come empty-handed when invited over to a Russian house because it is considered impolite to the host.

2. Take off your shoes in someone's home
The reason for this is that Russians usually walk a lot in dusty streets rather than using a car. Another reason is that in Russian houses, they usually use expensive rugs that are not easily cleaned.

3. Help women who carry something heavy
People in Russia believe that men are stronger than women. That's why if a man who watches a woman carry something heavy without helping her is considered impolite.

4. Give way to elderly in public transportation
It is a must for Russians to offer a seat for elderly and pregnant women in public transportation. Even young women are also offered a seat although this is optional.

5. Avoid burping in public
Some people maybe are proud if they can burp with a unique and long sound. Burping in public is considered extremely impolite. If you accidentally do this, don't apologize! It will only attract more attention because Russians will pretend they don't notice it somehow.
