Karavai – traditional Russian bread, made for a special occasion like weddings, birthdays etc…  and decorated with appropriate ornaments.

This one is for a wedding: the round , like a sun, shape with a plait around it and flowers symbolize life, the wheat ears for prosperity, two doves – love. According to Russian tradition Karavai with salt is the first thing that newlyweds should eat together to have many years of ” happily after”.
