Though it is the largest country in the world, one of the defining features of Russian society is the spirit of collectivism. This community vibe is present through the many antique and flea markets taking place around the country, and a visit to one of these is to peek through the window and glimpse the local culture. The long and fascinating history of this country also means its markets offer up a treasure trove to collectors from all walks of life. From Moscow to Saint Petersburg you will find anything and everything at flea markets, ranging from Soviet porcelain and old rotary dial phones to 1980 Olympics memorabilia, samovars, and jewelry.
