Russian Сulture of the 16th Century
June 16, 2014 14:00

At the turn of the 16th century the unification of Russian lands was completed and dependence on the Golden Horde khans was gone. There came to be the Russian centralized state which unlike the mononational states of the Western Europe was initially formed as multinational. Throughout one and a half centuries Moscow Russia organically adopted lots of ideas and principles of the Golden Horde. It was first of all the idea of monocracy, with its features borrowed by the Russian tsars. In this regard one can say that the Moscow tsar was a successor of the Mongolian khan.
