Salon culture is an important part of the culture of Russia, it is a real phenomenon that is not similar to any culture of other countries, since it contains a huge list of individual characteristics. Speaking about salons, it should be noted that they were all unique. Each of them was individual with its own rules, principles, advantages and disadvantages.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries salons were divided into two broad categories: aristocratic and democratic. However, the latter hardly can be called a democratic one. The division was carried out on the basis of the public and the participants. The first salons were mostly visited by true aristocrats by origin, people of high society who held high ranks. The latter were filled with the “intelligentsia”, which came from the most diverse strata of the population. Also each salon had its own direction: musical salons, philosophical, literary and so on. It was not uncommon for mixed types, where it was impossible to separate out a precise description.
