Saransk: Local Pecularities
February 19, 2018 16:57


Saransk is the centre of Finno-Ugric culture of Russia. Since 2007 a large festival titled “Shumbrat, Finno-Ugria!” has been held there.

It should be clarified that the Finno-Ugric people of Mordva are divided into two subgroups, Mordva-Moksha and Mordva-Erzya. There is also a pseudo-ethnonym of “shoksha” in literature and in the mass consciousness. The ethnonym “shoksha” has been first used to denote the Erzya of Tengushevsky and Torbeevsky districts of the Republic of Mordovia relatively recently. Moksha and Erzya speak similar, but different dialects, the relationships between the representatives of cultures are not easy.

Tables with the names of streets and institutions in Saransk are signed in three languages: in two Mordovian dialects and in Russian.

Trolley buses and buses are running around. However, shuttle buses have been definitely recognized as the most convenient means of transportation.
