Varangian, Rus, Eastern Viking
Varangian Rus, often referred to as Eastern Vikings, were Scandinavian warriors, traders, and explorers who ventured into the vast territories of what is now Eastern Europe and beyond during the Viking Age. These intrepid seafarers left their Nordic homelands to establish trade routes, settlements, and even serve as mercenaries in foreign lands.
The Varangian Rus played a significant role in the formation of early medieval states such as Kievan Rus', where they contributed to the cultural and political development of the region. Renowned for their martial prowess and maritime skills, they left a lasting impact on the territories they encountered, leaving behind a legacy that continues to be studied and celebrated today.
