There are many Russian Topics at Avantart and it is not easy to find them, as they are part of festival reports, museum pages, band portraits or travellogues. So I decided to compile the russian pages to my russian cosmos
My russian cosmos contends countries and regions, which belonged to Russia, the Soviet Union or the Russian Federation, whose culture is is completely or partially coined by russian culture. So also Ukraine, Altai are included-..

Puschkin / Interstudio    Russian Music    Datscha-Memory     ZweiterBlick
Travels and Travellogues    Literature    Russian Musicians and Ensembles    Potpourri

Interstudio in WinterPushkin (Carskoe Celo) near St. Peterburg is the home of the Theatre Academy INTERSTUDIO. You can go shopping there or stroll to the Café Trio, take part in the life of Andrej Blagov, read the 1997 festival diary or send a virtual postcard from the academy or from the city of Pushkin itself.

In case you prefer other ways of transport, have a look at the multimedia Submarine Trash!


Nikolai DmitrievMusic from Russia is part of my life. This part of my life started when I met Nikolai Dmitriev, manager, organisator, brother, genious, producer.

He opened my ears for russian music and he travelled with us through the vast spaces of the big country.
He introduced me to russian artists and musicians.

Nikolai Dmitriev:  

russian dream

A Datsha is the dream of many russians and more and more datshas are announced in the real estate paper. So I could not resist to invite you to the Datsha-Memory-Game.
