Get to know famous Russians!

Russia is famed for its talented people explorers and scientists, writers and poets, film directors and actors, musicians and artists, spacemen and sportsmen, political leaders and businessmen. You have probably heard something about some Russian celebrities, but these were, most probably, just bits and scraps of information. Here we try to bring outstanding Russians together and throw light upon their lives and contributions into life of Russia and, possibly, their international significance, if any.

Here you can read biographies of notable Russian persons and find answers to interesting questions, such as, for instance: Who is the greatest Russian poet? Why is Ivan IV called The Terrible? What was so great about Peter I? How did Kutuzov trick Napoleon and win the war? Who killed Alexander II? Was Yury Gagarin really the first man in the outer space? What sculptor was scolded by Nikita Khrushchev and later created his funerary monument? What musician was allowed to return to his motherland by Joseph Stalin, who said: Let him sing to the end? Who is the Russian boxer advertizing vodka? What scientist is the author of the statement: Russian democracy is the kingdom of satiated swine? Who directed the popular Soviet animation about Winnie-the-Pooh?

To make it more convenient for you to find the persons of your interest, we arrange them simply alphabetically (by the first letters of their surnames) and also have particular sections for:

People of Culture
People of Science
People of Business
Travellers and Explorers
People of Fashion and Design
