Fact of the day

Did you know that Russian Dolls are only 110 years old and actually originate in Japan? Called Matryoshka, the first Russian set of figurines was carved by Anatoliy Mamontov and was based on an oriental toy. They were then displayed in Paris at the Exposition Universelle and became an instant hit and are now synonymous with Russia.

Interesting, huh!
