Russian Kulich (Sweet Easer Bread) and Easter Eggs in Russia!

You can buy Kulich at any corner!Russia is preparing to celebrate Easter! It’s impossible to imagine Russian Easter without Kulich (or people also call this Easter Bread “Paskha”). Now you can buy Kulich at any corner. And today we are watching a short video how they make such Kuliches – I think it’s interesting!

“As a symbol of life, an egg goes back to pagan traditions,” explains Anna Yakovleva from Moscow’s House of the Icons museum. “But it’s also part of Christianity, symbolizing Christ’s resurrection. So when decorating them, the artists use the themes of spring, joy, beauty and rebirth.”
