Dream Country

Russians have had an on-again, off-again obsession with seeking answers through their dreams. The Yandex search engine recently turned this obsession into a report on what people in the world’s largest country dream about.

By compiling the 200 most popular dream-related search queries (“meaning of dreams about…”) entered in various parts of the country during the morning hours, Yandex created a Russian Map of Dreams. Not surprisingly, it reflected the country’s geography: bears visit the dreams of those living in wild, Siberian regions, Russians in the North dream of cranberries, while only residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg dream of the metro. In Chelyabinsk, people dream of meteorites.
