Russia and E. Europe: Culture and History

This group freely explores all aspects of life and culture in Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia. It is brought to life by its enthusiastic group members, many of whom have travelled, worked or lived in these areas. Where they wish to, members are encouraged to discuss with the group their experiences or interests, thus giving a wide range of topics which have included: lifestyles, history, music, ballet, literature, art, architecture, espionage, language, religion and politics in many states. Russian language may also be practised by members who wish to further their understanding or wish to test another language. Previous knowledge is not necessary.
