A web portal on Russian cultural heritage

In 2013 following the presidential instruction the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation opened a web portal www.culture.ru. The key idea behind the project is to promulgate Russian culture by providing extensive and detailed information on its historical and cultural heritage, familiarizing people with its background and current trends.

On the website everybody can become acquainted with articles on the Russian cultural artifacts, as well as get access to the sizable photo database, videotapes and infographics. All these thorough materials serve to raise awareness of the general public about profundity of the Russian cultural heritage.
