    I like Medieval Europe in general, regardless of country, and am a big Viking fan as well
    When I was younger I went through a period of fascination with Native American culture. I still like it, but not like I used to, especially since I discovered my own heritage. I also like Finland and her culture for alot of reasons. Are any of you interested in or admirers of any non slavic cultures or histories?

    I'm most well read in the history of ancient Greece. I like the history of battles with the Persians and their exuberant discovery of rational thought. The Vikings are also extraordinary, but I know less about them.

    I guess Australian culture, and Ancient Greek Mythology aspect of Greek culture.

    Besides Slavic it would be not Germanic as whole but particularly Norse, then reading about old-Baltic is interesting too since i know very little about them and they're relatively an off-shot of Slavic culture.
    Then i'd say pagan era Roman, and lately Indian due to Indo-European connections so i'm interested in Sanskrit, Vedic scriptures and such stuff.

    I'm interested in Scottish and Japanese history and culture. Actually the whole European history but specially the Napoleonic era and the world wars.

    Almost every other White culture is interesting to me.

    The Medieval period was always my interest, since my early childhood.

    Also, I was fascinated with the "barbarian" people from European Antiquity. Celts, Germani, and especially the Paleo-Balkan peoples… The lack of historical evidences just boosts up my imagination.

    At the time, I was very fascinated with the achievements of the peripheral and exotic whites like the Aryans and Tocharians.

    Most lately, I enjoyed reading about the people of the steppes: Sarmatians, Scythians, etc.

    From the other World cultures, I admire achievements of the East Asian civilizations, and the morals and values of the Native Americans (from Northern America). However, they are no match for our glorious culture! :P :D

    Germanic, Baltic, Japanese, Celtic, Greek, Roman. (In that order)

    Basically these are the only people besides Slavs who actually HAVE a culture.

    I find all histories and cultures interesting but obviously European is most interesting. One of most interesting periods are for me middle ages and era's up to 19th century especially in broad Alpine and pre-Alpine area. :P :D

    As a history teacher,  i find many things about other cultures interesting.  I'm probably weakest with Indian culture and history.  Ironically the school i teach in and the town i live in are now 20% Indian and Pakistani.  I do enjoy Westerns European and Japanese culture.  Scandinavians are great too.  I love how they went from the feared and terrible Norsemen to the feared and terrible IKEA company

    This, plus Persian culture. Also, lately I have become increasingly interested in Korean culture and history (mainly thanks to Husarz :D).
