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 :)

1. We do that in Spain, most of Europe do that too, 2. We also do that in Spain, and most Europe, 3. Everybody in Europe do that, 4. 'Dress to impress' is done everywhere in Europe, ever gone to Italy?, 5. Whistling is probably one of the difference between us, 6. People do that in Europe too?, 7. I live in a warm European country so I can't relate, but I'm sure Scandinavians do, 8. That's common hygiene? People do that everywhere?, 9. I guess that's superstition, not really a thing here, 10. We live in Europe, we have old buildings everywhere, including theaters, 11. Maternity leave is a thing everywhere except USA, 12. I agree, the underground is amazing. Really, this video is just 'Things USA should start doing that the rest of the world have been doing since forever'.
Even in India at least where I belong from(Maharashtra) we get some sweets or snacks or fruits when we visit someone..
And there we do have a Pagoda temple which is having Asia's biggest pillarless meditation dome.
As this is all about good habbits and all so m not mentioning but India is really beautiful place I thing everyone should visit atleast once..
Hey Marina I think we Indians also have a culture of taking gifts when u visit someone also we wash our hands also we serve a lot of food to our guests and I guess u left out one thing that's common in our culture we always take out our footwear before entering the homes
When you hear "na zdrowie" you must know that this phras comes from Poland :) people from West very often confuse russian people with polish people. I'm Pole nad often on holiday i heard from foreginers " oh you are from Russia"
When I went to school, I was born in 1953, and started school when I was five (5) years old. But since I was the first born, I got tons of attention from my parents and my maternal grandmother; therefore, I could read and write when I started school. In any case, you would not believe the lies we were told about Russia. That was the "Cold War", and our teachers told us that Russian Girls looked like men. We had to duck under our desk once a day, so if Russia nuked us, that would save us! SUCH BULLSHIT! You are just a young girl, but did Russia say stupid stuff about the USA? Oh, not to play up to you, but you are a very beautiful girl, and you should be proud of that and your intelligence.
It would be interesting to see where these habits originated. IMO-it may have to do with the Soviet era. Women were not able to dress pretty or even have cosmetics. Things were pretty drab and dirty then, too. Also, there was little to eat then as well. I bet that has had a lot of influence on how people act now that they have been liberated.
So what would you suggest saying instead of ''na zdorovye'' when everyone's ready to drink and waiting for something as short as ''cheers''? I was once in this kind of situation and couldn't come up with anything else but ''na zdorovye'', which I'd heard in some youtube video. :)
Excellent presentation ! Spasibo ! and lovely presenter too ♥
Habit # 2 is also very very German too. Germans in public may seem very private and separate, but if you're a friend or relative invited to visit for lunch, go with an appetite, and attitude of appreciation, because the welcome is very warm and generous, and refusing or not eating much of anything would be a heartbreak or insult to the host.
In Chinese culture it is polite to refuse at first, and refuse again, but then maybe compromise and take part, with great appreciation. If a Chinese refuses at first, maybe they're just doing THEIR polite thing, not actually trying to insult.
Canada also gets minus 35° C too and we still go to work or school, just the same. It can be that cold several days or perhaps even weeks, so we can't shut down the country or the economy just because it's cold outside.
Марина че за х.. вы сняли ?? На здоровье до сих пор молвят , однако не юные люд , и девицы уже издавна щам не прогуливаются повсевременно на каблуках , а на плоской подошве , и никто не обидится если гость не желает кушать 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ нахер ты снимаешь и говоришь хрень какую то ?
Wow! So many things in common. I am from the states but my family immigrated from the Dominican Republic, so you always show up with a gift to someone’s house. And wash your hands when you get home/ before eating or preparing food. The whistling is interesting! And you always should be ready to eat A LOT! Thank you for sharing!! Very cool list!
Your videos have been a real eye opener for me.Most shows I hzve seen only show the financially hurting,elderly and their sad living conditions. Usually posted by someone claiming to want to help them.
Na zdrowie. Is polish expression. But people are often ignorant thinking Poland and Russia is the some. We polish people when we say we are polish often we hear 'so you can speak Russian'. And we just look and say 'well no, Russia is another beautiful country.'
I was in St. Petersburg in December 2002. The temperature reached -30C. - I'm from Florida, so for me, this was very cold. Even the locals were dressed for this weather. Going back to Russia next month, for the 10th time.
