Way beyond the World Cup, while the eyes of the world are focused on Russia, the largest country on the planet also offers a variety of options for Brazilians who want to start a new life in another country.
Brazilians can achieve great successes in Russia. But it’s not about being world champions for the sixth time. We’re talking about quality of life. The Eurasian giant, once considered distant, has become increasingly attractive in the Country of Football. What can explain this phenomenon?
On lists of positive Russian aspects from a Brazilian viewpoint, you certainly wouldn’t expect to find climate. But that’s a big mistake. Russia is situated in temperate zones and has four well-defined seasons. If Saint Petersburgh, in the north, is undeniably freezing, Sochi, further south, is an incredible seaside resort. Home to the Brazilian national Team during the World Cup, the city registers average temperatures of 30 degrees in the summer. You can even enjoy the beach.
The cookery, on the other hand, isn’t very exotic. There are choices of healthy dishes, such as fish and salad, as well as the popular Strogonoff. Even the local fast food network doesn’t serve anything that isn’t familiar to Brazilians: they serve a variety of pancakes, sweets and savories. Not bad!
The Russians are cordial. Of course, the stereotype of rudeness and asperity exists, and isn’t entirely imaginary. But as soon as a relationship is established, the Russian friendliness and kindness will appear, added to an incredible sense of loyalty. And this is fundamental for whoever wishes to begin a new life in other latitudes.
Now, let’s get to what really matters: quality of life. Inherited from the Soviet period, the subway network is amazingly efficient and beautiful. Even those who are used to frequenting big cities all over the world are impressed by the beauty of the stations and the speed of the trains. From a cultural viewpoint, there are also great and enriching surprises. We can guarantee enjoyment and personal growth to those who visit the Hermitage or watch the world famous Bolshoi Ballet.
Finally, of course, come the opportunities for jobs and careers. Russia’s economy is expanding and will soon rival other world powers – especially in the field of state-of-the-art technology. How about being part of this success story?
It’s easy to see there’s no lack of reasons to try life on the other side of the world. Do you think there are still many barriers, such as language? Start learning right now and you’ll find that any difficulty can be overcome in favor of so many qualities. Slava Rossiya!
