The world has always known that Russia is a pretty odd place when it comes to their people..!!
The country itself is beautiful with mountains and incredible landscapes. But it’s hard to tell why things are a bit…different in the mother country.
Surely, Russia has gone through its share of political drama and perhaps that has something to do with the odd culture. Whatever your opinion is of Russia, there are parts of the people that can be quite humorous. It seems that the entire country has weird stuff happening, and not just in the bigger cities. Here are some of the strangest things that happen only in Russia.
First of all, wild bears are by no means afraid of humans. In fact, the bears have gotten addicted to the smell of jet fuel, and will even hover helicopters in order to get a whiff.
Both bear and human seem to be exceptional daredevils when it comes to confronting each other. Speaking of daredevils, there is a trend of people, known as “sky walkers” who will scale cranes, towers, and more in order to reach the top, all without a harness or anything to keep them from falling. Often, they will have cameras attached to their heads so they can share their climbs online. Sky walkers insist that they are trained professionals and discourage anyone from trying these climbs at home. About 5 people have fallen from these kind of climbs.
