When one thinks of the Soviet Union, thoughts of Stalin, the Iron Curtain, the Cold War, and massive militaries comes to mind. Although all of these thoughts are vital parts of the Soviet Union and its history, below the steely facade is a vibrant culture, ranging from cinema to literature to music. Constantly evolving, this culture incorporated both the communist tenants of the government as well as old Russian values, folklore, and traditions. I hope you learn a thing or two about this fascinating land and its people!
