Russian Art & Culture is the most popular online platform in Europe with over 50,000 readers. We update our website daily with news, articles and interviews. Check out our calendar for the latest listings of Russian cultural events including exhibitions, concerts, talks and conferences taking place near you. Our readership is predominately in the UK, Russia and the United States but we publish events from around the world.

This website was first launched as a blog in response to the successful ‘Cultural Exchange: Russia and the West’ conference at the University of Bristol organised by our Editor in 2011. The blog quickly grew and was launched as a professional website in 2012.  Later that year we  launched our sister site and published the first guide to Russian Art Week in London. [read more]
