If you’re a fan of film, world cinema, storytelling from Russia and the Soviet-era or if you feel like you’ve seen all that Netflix has to offer, then Klassiki could be for you!

Klassiki is the world’s first-ever streaming platform dedicated to classic cinema from Russia, the Caucasus and Central Asia.

Klassiki is Russian for ‘classics’, and as such, we hold a curated permanent collection of hundred of classic films from the region.

Our library has been carefully put together to give you the very best experience of filmmaking from Russia and beyond.
