Vegetarianism in Russia

share
Vegetarianism appeared in Russia in the 14th century through the followers of the Lenten mode of life. In the beginning of the 20th century St. Petersburg had a blooming vegetarian culture. However, the revolution of 1917 stopped all that as it was considered to be a reflection of bourgeois ideology. Nowadays it’s again slowly becoming popular. Despite this St. Petersburg can still be a very challenging city for vegetarians, partly due to the lack of fresh produce during a considerable part of the year. Vegans particularly are strongly advised to be patient: not thinking too much about the daily fur fashion parades on the streets is a good test of the serenity provided by a meatless diet. While your friends may think that eating only potatoes and mushrooms for a couple of weeks will do, for a pleasant meat free stay in St. Petersburg you need more nutrition.
