The Silk Road and Russian Ethnic Cultural Heritage is jointly launched by the Russian Museum of Ethnography and the National Museum of China. The 594 exhibits provided by the Russian Museum of Ethnography epitomize the unique culture of peoples in southern Russia inhabiting the areas between the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
Among the exhibits are exotic traditional clothing and various handicrafts, horse gear and carriages that are typical elements of nomadic life, objects that indicate the spread of the Orthodox Church, Islam and Buddhism as well as items that offer a glimpse of mountain people’s dwellings, grassland people’s yurts, cuisine and board games. The exhibits were items owned by peoples deeply influenced by the Grassland Silk Road in ancient times and the Middle Ages. They had no barriers of communication and lived in harmony, making the Grassland Silk Road a route of economic and cultural exchanges bringing about prosperity.
