Join us for an exciting cultural and historical journey into the fascinating world of early and current Russia-New Zealand relations.

Discover the first Russian–Māori encounters and the cultural understanding behind the Russian “icy haka” contrasting with the later years of the 19th century when New Zealand was on fearful guard against Russian invasion.

Learn about the heroism of Russian ANZACs in the First War, and the stunning beauty of Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova whose New Zealand visit became a cultural landmark. Find out more about the Second War alliance, wary New Zealand-Soviet military, social and diplomatic links post-War, and the initial opportunities for New Zealand in post-Cold War Russia.
