There are certain things that Russians do that I feel people all over the world should do :) I just moved to the States and I miss a couple of these things. Learn Russian in Saint-Petersburg (https://goo.gl/HgakzE), and stay in my apartment!
Whether you'll be visiting Moscow or Saint- Petersburg (maybe for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia (Россия)?) I think it's very nice to learn some Russian habits.
We actually never say 'NA ZDOROVIE' when we drink, but we tend to say long speeches. We also wash hands first thing when we come home and we would never visit our friends empty-handed. So get a chocolate next time you visit a Russian, and don't forget to take your shoes off when you enter the apartment :)

The lowest underground in my opinion is located in Kiev, but I haven't been in Saint Petersburg so I can't assure it being correct, however I've travelled thoroughly thought my life therefore I'm pretty sure abouty statement
I will be going to Russia in a year or two. I am not going now because I want to learn the language enough to eb able to do things for myself like arrange transportation and lodging. Also I want to spend 6 months or more there in order to become fluent in Russian. I want to go by train from Moscow to Vladivostok and back. If possible I would like to go as part of a group as long as we all agree to speak only Russian.
"Dress to Impress" gets taken a little far by some of the Russian girls, to go buy milk and bread they will spend as much time getting dressed as if they were going on a date. :)) pretty nice if you a guy in Russia, lots of "eye candy" if you like that sort of stuff but sure not nice if you are alway waiting for someone to get ready :)
Apart from alcohol, flower, sitting before the journey I am so surprised how similar it is to bangladeshi and south asian culture! No wonder we are historic allies! I really liked the sitting down before journey and i think i will do it the next time I travel, which should be quite soon.
I'm from India and am learning Russian for the past one month. In India, we always bring gifts when visiting people. In South India, if you are visiting elderly people, we almost always take fruits since sweets and other eatables may disagree with their health. Fruits are safe. We also feed people huge amounts of food and the women will fuss over you and say "you've eaten NOTHING" even if you have polished off plates of food. You almost never refuse food unless you are not well or have been visiting a million people in the previous hour. In some parts of South India, people sit down before leaving a temple since you are technically supposed to sit silently and think of higher things, but that habit has almost disappeared. We also wash our hands AND feet when returning home. Almost always, before eating, you should wash your hands and also after eating a meal, since we often eat with our hands. You generally use only the right hand for eating, never the left (in almost all parts of India). And, yes, you do have the most beautiful metros. I saw a lot of them in Moscow and was very, very impressed.
In my part of the USA, just outside of Chicago, the weather never really stops classes. My high school was closed for 2 days in the history of the school. The school has been there since before WWII. I have never been to Russia, but I have been to Ukraine 5 times. Some of your customs are the same as theirs
Well, maternity leave is not that as explained here: it's actually a month, if I remember it right, before the child's birth, than 1.5 year of paid maternity leave (although there is a cap for such payment), and than 1.5 years unpaid leave. Than, you can make photos in underground, no problem. It is prohibited to make photos for commercial use. And here comes a tricky thing: if you have a large DSLR camera with large lenses, you put it in a tripod, station attendant may think that is a commercial photoshoot, and ask you to stop. However, it becomes more and more rare, as everyone has those DSLRs nowadays.
My Russian girlfriend is watching this video and she's laughing, all Russians young and old when doing a toast all say Nostrovia, most of her facts here are wrong, and she only speaks for herself. You are Russian or want a be Russian that came to United States, and you know nothing about the people or the habits of Russian people. Americans bring gifts and or something to a birthday or special event. It's the morons you know and hang out with that do this, please don't speak for all Americans as well. You forgot to say that Americans go and vote for New President every 4 years while Russians have Putin who refuses to step down as leader that's a great Russian habit you forgot in your video. Americans are this and Americans are that, but you and your family came to USA, if the habits of the Russians are so great you should move back and do the American people a favor.
What about music groups that record whistling? Like Max Barskih in the song Туманы, or Градусы - Я Больше Никогда. Is there hidden meaning in the song for having recorded the whistling? I sometimes wonder if it was weird for them to record whistling in the studio if it’s bad luck or rude, or even whether fans of these groups whistle along normally?
you can most definitely take pictures inside the Moscow, SP or Kazan Metro stations. we did. in fact there are spots on the platform which says "selfie spot"
the moscow metro stations have become a tourist attraction in itself. we regularly bump into tour groups while commuting. and the system is very efficient
Everything what you mentioned is surely true, but nearly all these customs and Habits signify a civilized Person (with the exception of sitting down before taking up traveling, perhaps). For example I always felt awkward to enter into somebody`s house or flat with my street - shoes on, but the only Country in the world I know so far where there are Slippers waiting for you beyond the threshold is Russia.
Believe or not .. I’m Armenian we do the same exact same things , i don’t actually know why , maybe because we were part of СССР 🤷🏻♀️ P.S. not only that we eat russian food a lot , we know russian , it’s like second language in Armenia :)
OMG same thing for the "Don't visit someone empty handed" and also when we meet someone we know randomly in the street he ends up drinking tea, getting snacks and having dinner with us XD

In Brazil it's expected and nice to bring gifts to someone house too, as well as to prepare a lot of food for the visitors, and wash our hands everytime (we also shower once or twice a day). There are about 3 months of maternity license... 3 years is too much!
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription.
