ICEBREAKERS

BRILLIANT!

1. Russians are exceedingly proud of their country’s accomplishments. You should have no trouble finding something in Russia to admire and discuss: art, music, literature (particularly from pre-Soviet days), and major scientific achievements, especially as exemplified in Russia’s space program. Express a desire to visit cultural sites such as Red Square in Moscow or the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, even if you never find the time to actually get there. You should also have some familiarity with the names of great Russian artists and some Russian winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature:

Image Ivan Bunin (1870–1953), author of The Village and Dark Avenues, was awarded the prize in 1933. He emigrated to France in 1919, fleeing the Russian Revolution.
