ABSTRACT
The article explores the influence of Russia's culture on the development of Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke. His involvement with Russia occurred primarily during the year 1899 and 1900. He made two trips to the country, both of them in the company of Lou Andreas-Salomé, who introduced him to many of the leading contemporary writers and artists and sought to communicate to him her own sense of the essence of Russian culture. Between the two visits he submerged himself in the study of the Russian language, history and culture, and acquired substantial knowledge of these subjects, despite the short duration of his studies.
