If you come to Russia in the Summertime..

You will find that there are any number of local sponsored beauty contests going on.

One of the nicest things about them from my perspective is that there is absolutely no self-doubt or political correctness used to criticize or shun these events like they sometimes do in the West.

Instead it really is a great feeling when you can just.. well.. celebrate truly beautiful women for who they are and be inspired by it just the way mother nature intended it from the start.

These open-air beauty contest are always fun and popular events to go to. Indeed it is certainly a large part of the cultural fabric in Russia and the FSU.

So if you can’t make it to Russia this Summer to see one of these great events for yourself.

Hopefully these photos will bring a little of that experience to you.
